1-to-N, a single photo file to many pages

How can I print a high-res photograph as multiple pages?

I saw a website on here recently that I can no longer find. The website allowed you to upload a photograph. It then returned a multi-page PDF that you could print. You could hang all of these photos on the wall and create a HUGE poster. What is this website?

The website I recall had an online and an offline version of the program that you could use.

"multiple images"
all turned up nothing.

Thanks a ton, metafilter freaks.

Best answer: the rasterbator?

I am not sure about a website, but you can do it in illustrator.

Many printers have this feature built in- copy machines especially. Select your printer and choose "properties" or "preferences" and look for the option in there. It's usually with the page layout options.

Best answer: Are you looking for block posters?

The rasterbator made many fine dorm room decorations when I was in college. If I could think of a way to make its output look less "lots of pieces of paper stuck together" I would still use it.

ocherdraco, I know what you mean. I haven't done it myself, but it just occurred to me that you could take the file generated by rasterbator and turn each page into jpg files which you could then have printed by a photo printer. Then frame and mount and you'd have something a bit more presentable than pieces of paper on a wall.

Response by poster: Sorry to double post - it looks like block posters does it as well, so I am also marking that as a best answer in case anyone comes across this question.
