DoubleTake for Mac OS X


poster printing DoubleTake 2.2 can split an image onto several pages to make large prints.
This is not only for panoramas, but for any image as long as you don't mind some cutting with a real knife and pasting with glue.

Poster Setup

Along with the usual printing menu items there is now a Poster Setup... item.

It gives 2 ways to set the size of your poster.
  • Set the width or height, and DoubleTake figures out the needed number of pages needed
  • Pick the number of pages to fill, and DoubleTake fill them as much as possible.
