Tiled Poster printing on the Mac...

easy-to-use interface prints huge tiled pictures

Imprint StudioAxamblis has now answered the pleas of millions of graphics users on the Mac: help me tile an image into large poster size. Imprint Studio 1.0 for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard is a tool that allows you to print posters using a standard format printer by splitting up an image into several smaller tiles, which can then be printed and assembled to form the final poster. Imprint Studio offers an easy-to-use interface and addresses hobby photographers as well as professionals.

Imprint Studio uses Mac OS X Leopard's new cutting edge technology CoreAnimation to create an appealing and easy-to-use user interface. Printing a poster is as easy as choosing the image and the posters size and hitting print. But as the application is targeted to a wide range of users, many options are available to further customize the result.

Imprint Studio Features:
* Easy-to-use, nice-looking interface
* Watermarks and logos in every corner of the poster
* Printing of indicators and marks to help you cut and assemble to tiles
* Wide range of input formats (PNG, JPG, TIFF, etc. as well as vector formats such as PDF and PostScript)

Imprint Studio takes an image as input, lets you add text and images in each of the corners and choose the size of the final poster. The print engine splits up the poster into tiles which can be printed using your standard format printer.

Minimum Requirements: Mac OS X Version 10.5 Leopard or higher * Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel * 6.0 MB Hard Drive space * Runs on any Mac supported by Leopard

Imprint Studio 1.0 is priced at 15 Euros and is available now. Discounts for companies and educational institutions are available. The unregistered version limits the dimensions of the poster to 60cm width and height, but is fully functional in every other aspect.
