PosteRazor for Mac

CNET Editors' review

Need to print a large poster but you don't have the right printer to do it? PosteRazor for Mac guides you through five quick and easy steps in order to cut the image into several parts and then print them as a multipage PDF file with your normal A4 printer.

This free program comes as a 1.2 MB file. The installation was easy and rather quick. During our testing PosteRazor for Mac seemed stable and didn't crash. The interface is very simple and wizard-like, making it easy for new users to get started. In the settings, you can choose between different languages and different units of length to work with. The program guides you through five easy steps: loading your image, defining the paper format, defining image overlapping for each page, choosing the size for your poster, and finally launching and saving the multipage PDF file so you can print it right away or save for later. The program supports many well-known formats including .bmp, .gif, .jpeg, .psd, .png, .tiff, and so forth. Essentially, the program does just one thing, but it does it well and in a very simple and quick way.

With its simple features, PosteRazor for Mac could be a helpful tool for anyone who needs to print large images quickly, without much hassle or prior knowledge of print.

    "RPG MAPS MADE EASY"

    September 1, 2012  |   By GwydionMatauc

    Version: PosteRazor 1.4.5

    Pros

    A single page RPG map can be turned into an entire playing surface for gaming!
    Example: http://rpgmapshare.com/index.php?q=gallery&g2_itemId=40&g2_page=19
    Easy to use & save projects.
    Options of using Height or Width as size gauge in portrait or landscape mode. Full printer capabilities allowing you to choose which pages to print if several contain only a small portion of unnecessary details.
    Works on Mac or PC. You can share the finished Poster with others as a multi-paged pdf cross-platform.
    Adjust your original jpeg for color & detail, saving THAT as a separate file BEFORE you use the program.

    Cons

    Needs to be high res JPEG picts that can be expanded without losing detail. You won't know if it looks good until you save it as a pdf on your desktop & look at each picture.
    I have found 'sharpening' an image shows up as jagged edges on occasion when expanded to "Poster" size.
    You can gauge the "Overlap" but fitting is still time consuming & taping the back of the pages doesn't keep the front edge from lifting.
    I had to "play with" how to piece it together for the best result as I have connected a top row then a bottom row only to find the bottom row didn't match perfectly when combining the two.
    Going one page at a time working in a 4-square pattern has worked the best for me, making sure to overlap pieces exactly the same way {left over right, top over bottom, etc} I have NOT tried NO overlap yet as I have found 'some' inconsistencies on occasion, but will try it in the near future.
    It MAY depend upon your printer as that software is the last interpretation of the project.

    Summary

    GET IT!
    You will find so many projects for you, kids, social groups, birthdays, etc that need a poster; Without having to pay for professional printing.
    Keep overlap to a minimum & try edge to edge printing on a small 4-square project {tape from the back}
    Cardboard Stock is unforgiving on edges & either requires trimming to fit or "0" overlap.
    Getting a small piece of tape to hold two sides/edges together to be able to turn over for proper securing is a test of patience & dexterity. {mostly patience}
    I can't do without it & am SO grateful for it!

    "PosteRazor"

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    THANK YOU. IT REALLY does work and the price is right. free. I finally donâ??t have to go through all the gyrations of tiling in my graphics programs [Illustrator and/or Freehand] only to have it print out in grayscale. This worked the FIRST time and I now have a tiled color photo in my living room hanging on the wall.

    I'm a Photoshop CS3 user. For the life of me I could not figure out how to print a large image to tiled letter sheets to make a poster. You nailed it with PosteRazor! It was just a hobby project but you saved my butt!
    Thanks so much for making this program!

    Summary

    ...tilied printing
    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I was on deadline and am not a big fan of printed outpout. I found out you can't tile print in Photoshop and can use Illustrator (which I don't have) but I found PosterAzor and it did the job nicely, at least I can't complain. It's ease of use right after installation was much appreciated. Thanks!
