Hi. I’m George, and in this video. I’ll be showing you how you can do Tile printing in Photoshop Elements. This picture here is too large with my printer. There is a standard sheet of paper right there. This is four times that size, and I’ll show you how you can print this onto four sheets of paper. And then you can then tape that together now.

There’s a link for that right down there in the description. Okay, let’s get to it. [MUSIC] Sometimes you may have a situation where you need to print something larger than your printer can actually handle, and the way that’s normally done Is you’ll print that on to four or more sheets in this case. This is four sheets here now. A lot of programs have an automatic tiling function, unfortunately. Photoshop Elements doesn’t have that now. There is one possibility. Let me bring up the print dialog box here, file and print, and that’s that your printer might have a tiling function, even though Photoshop Elements doesn’t have that in which case that would work, you can see here that the image doesn’t fit on this sheet of paper. There’s my standard sheet of paper right there, eight-and-a-half by eleven and I’m doing this at 11 by 22 or 17 by 22 rather right down here, and that says scaled and what it does is it actually will scale this down and fit that onto a regular sheet of paper. So yeah, there’s a problem on that, even though it says 17 by 22 right here and down here, it says actual size 22 by 17 and over here, it says 22 by 17 even though all of those say that larger paper size what you’ll actually get. Is this scale down? This is scaled right, there scaled down to whatever the standard size paper is for your printer. In my case. It’s an 8 and a half by 11 standard sheet, so all these that say scaled are going to actually reduce the size of the image down to your standard paper size, so that’s not going to work. You give us that tiled function now. Sometimes your printer may be able to actually do the tiling, even though you don’t see it in here and you find that down here, It says page setup. This brings up the printer properties for your specific printer right now. I’m using a Canon TS 9100 series printer right here and in here? Everything looks about the same. I have standard paper in here and so forth, but if I go over here to page setup and right down here page layout, they have an option here for tiling poster but notice that this only gives me two sheets. I’m gonna go as large as a two sheet paper, so I can do instead of an eight-and-a-half by the 19 to 11 by 17 but that’s still not big enough for my project, so this won’t work. But it is possible that would have reprinted You have may be able to do that larger print size, so take a look at that first where it says page setup and just double check to see if your printer can actually do a larger tiling because that may be all you need if your printer can’t do that like mine, can’t you know? I could print, you know, one side or this side here. I could do that on my printer, but I couldn’t do all four. Then we’ll have to do this manually now. The idea here is to copy parts of this image into a different file and then set it up, so we can then overlap those just by a little bit and allow us to tape it together and make it a larger picture now. One thing about this because we’re taping this thing together. It’s not going to be a real nice display quality image. I wouldn’t recommend doing this with photographs. For instance, you’re gonna be seeing those seams in there. You’re gonna be seeing the lines. It’s not a good way to go, but let’s say you’re doing a kid’s party and you want a big picture like this to put up on the wall for the kid’s party? This is just fine for that, or if you need to make a template for something, this will work out great for that particular kind of a use, so let’s see how this is done. The first thing we need to do is to get ourselves some guidelines in here to give us that overlap. Now what I want is a half inch overlap on either side. Now these two guidelines here. This is showing me the paper size, so I have four sheets of paper in here and I want to put in a guideline on either side of this on either side of this, giving me a half inch overlap on either side. That’s pretty easy to do right now. This is that 11 so if I had 10 and a half and 11 and a half on the vertical, that would give me those two guidelines, we’ll put those exact by using the view and new guide, and this is going to be a vertical guide, so the first ones at ten and a half. That’s ten point five. There it is second one is at 11 and a half same thing new guide and then is type in eleven point five. There we go now on this side. We’re at eight and a half inches so eight and nine would be like two numbers here. For the horizontal guidelines. Same thing the view come down to new guide changes to horizontal and. I’ll set this first one at 8 there it is and then set the second one down here. New guide measures still horizontal and set this at nine. There we are now we can copy out parts this image and give us an overlap in there, making it easier to put it together and then tape it together. We now need another file, a new file. It’s all still file new blank file, and I’ll set this one at the standard US paper size now. I’m doing this wide instead of tall, so I want the width to be my lighter number. So I’ll set this one at 11 and then set the height at 8.5 That would give me the horizontal image there we go. I’ll just dock this right, There’s at both docked. There’s the original, and here’s my smaller size now. We can put all four pieces into the one file and then just set them as several layers, then it’s print each layer separately, so lets. Go back over here again now. I’m going to do this, lets. Do this left upper left-hand corner first? I’ll grab the selection marquee up here. This is the rectangular marquee. Go up to view and make sure that snap to guides is checked and that is that’s just fine. They come outside the top here and then pull this down until we come down to that second set of lines so down to the middle and then go one beyond so our outside and we get the overlap and here in the overlap right down there. Make sure you’re on the right layer over here and then do a copy edit. Copy, switch over here and then edit paste and there we go now. I want to take this because that’s our overlap in here. We want to take this and just put this right against that bottom and right edge, just like that now. Most printers are going to leave a little bit of a white space in here. A little bit of a white space down there. They won’t print clear to the edge. If you have on the prints go to the edge that may be a little bit easier, But in most cases, it’ll be about a quarter of an inch in there, that’s why. I did a half inch overlap so even with a quarter of an inch. We have a half inch to work in here to properly. Align this, so there’s. Our first piece. Let’s do a new layer all hi. I’ll just hide that one new layer. Let’s do our next piece. That’s this side right here. Back to our tool. Let’s just deselect outside the upper right hand corner this time and again pull to the further away guidelines. There it is, so the middle one is the actual paper size and then pull of the guidelines just past the middle same thing edit, copy back to our other file over here, edit paste and then grabbing the move tool. Let’s move this to the left and bottom right there, so again, the cut edges for the ones you want against the edge of your paper and once again, this position now gives us a half inch overlap area on those two sides. Okay, let’s do the same thing again. New layer right here. So go back over here. We’ll do this side next, and that’s just deselect and grab that rectangular marquee same trick, pull the marquee up until you’re at the guidelines that are just past the middle point and then edit copy back to our new file. Edit and paste this time. These are the cut lines here, so move those against the edges there. It is back over here again and get our last side and then deselect back to the elliptical marquee or the rectangular marquee, rather put in your selection like that edit, copy back over here, make a new layer slide that one and then edit paste and again your cut sides are right here and right here, so move those against these sides of your paper, and there we go, so we’re all set now. We can now print this on to four sheets of paper. All you have to do is show one layer and hide the rest print this and then hide that. Show your next one. Print this hide that show your next one print this hide that show your next one print that, and then you’re all set to go. You have four sheets of paper with the four different parts of your image and again that half inch overlap on each one, so you can then do a little trimming and we’ll just visually line it up and it should work out Just fine and then either a tape, it or a glue it together. I kind of like tape on paperclip. Because glue tends to wrinkle the paper up. But there you go. That’s how to do a manual tiling of an image. If your printer won’t allow you to do the tiling automatically, all right. If you like this video, make sure you hit that like button. Don’t forget to click on share.
