The tiling feature in Resize divides an enlargement into smaller pieces so that the image can be printed on a smaller printer. For example, you might want to create a mural that is 8 feet tall by 12 feet wide, but your printer can only print 24-inch wide strips. With the tiling feature, you could automatically create four separate files that are 24 inches wide and 8 feet tall, to create your mural in sections.
With the tiling feature, all you do is specify the size of paper you have to print on and if you would like the pages to overlap. Then ON1 Resize will resize your image and section it down into the individual tiles.
To use the Tiling pane, follow these instructions:
- Turn Tiling on by toggling the on/off switch in the pane header.
- Set the Width and Height fields to the size and orientation of paper that you wish to print on, or you can select the number of rows and columns instead.
- Set the Overlap size. The overlap makes each tile overlap so you can tape multiple panels together and corrects for printer margins if you are not printing borderless.
- Set the file type for the newly created files for each tile.
- Set the destination folder for the new files. Each file will be named with the original filename and the tile indicated in the filename.
The preview will show cyan guidelines for each tile that will be created. The bottom of the Tiling pane will tell you how many tiles will be created.
