How to Print a Photo on Multiple Pages

By Helen Jain

Photos that have large resolutions or are best when printed in larger sizes are sometimes printed on multiple pages. Printing the photo on two or more pages requires setting up the printing options so that the printer recognizes how the photo should print and which areas to stop printing on each page.

Step 1

Open the photo in a digital imaging program, such as Photoshop or Illustrator. Using Word is possible as well, if your computer does not have an imaging program.

Step 2

Select "File" and scroll down the list until reaching "Print". Click on "Print" and wait for the printing set up options. Some programs require selecting "Set up" or "Print set up" instead of "Print." Make sure the set up options are brought up according to the program.

Step 3

Select "Time Imageable Table" or similar options in the program. If there is not an option with a similar title, look over the various titles and any pictures that come with the titles and see if the pictures show multiple pages or only a single page. Click on the options that allow printing one photo on multiple pages.

Step 4

Select overlap options, which give margins so that connecting the pages forms the picture. Overlap around 1/2 inch or so.

Step 5

Print the photo. The number of pages should match the set up options selected under the imageable table.
