insert page break into screen capture?

Printer filter: a Snagit screen capture of a web page yields an 8.5 x 22" (96dpi) document in Photoshop 7. What can I easily do (short of using Photoshop to break the one document into two 8.5 x 11" documents) in order to print it out as a two page document, thus keeping the same width? Photoshop, Snagit, and Windows Picture Viewer all want to print it all out on a single 8.5 x 11" page by shrinking the width and length, which makes the content nearly unreadable. Converting it to a PDF document yields the same result. So, what's a quick and easy way of inserting a page break where I want it into a screen capture (JPG or PNG format)? OS: Windows XP

Use the Rectangle Marquee tool to select the part of an image you want to print.
Choose File > Print, select Print Selected Area, and click Print. Do this for each side choosing half the image each time.

I don't think Photoshop will do page breaks.

Your print driver may be able to do this -- look for an option to "tile" your print across multiple pages -- it will print it at 100% scale and on as many pages as needed to get the whole thing.

Best answer: In SnagIt's editor you can go to Page Setup and select "Fill to Width" in the Image Scale Options. This will print the image to the width of one page and for as many pages as necessary in height.

SnagIt 9: Click the "S" icon/button in the upper left corner of the Editor window, click on Print > Page Setup.

SnagIt 8: Click on File > Page Setup.
