MS Paint – Tip for printing maps, for example

I rarely find a feature built into an MS application included with the operating that is not surpassed by other commercial or freeware apps, this one of those exceptions.

I needed to print an enlarged version of a image file (a topographic map) and do so to multiple 8.5×11 sheets.

MS Paint has the ability to do just this and the results are excellent.

Open the image in paint, find page setup and select “Fit to” and dial in the number of pages. I made a 3×3 grid or nine sheets.

After printing from the laser, I did a little folding, trimming and taping and I have a perfectly serviceable USGS topographic map. This is a really nice feature of Paint.
