My printer can print 12" x 18".

I want to print an image ... say of 24" x 48".

Is there a way to do this in QI ....  QI makes the layout and prints different sections,
then I paste together ?

Yes, It is called Poster mode.

I can't find a video. Be happy to make one if you need it.
In the meantime, It is sort of self explanatory.

1) Select paper size . I set QU that I was using 13 x 19 paper.

2) Select print size. I selected 24 x 36

3) Place your image into the queue with auto crop on.

4) Qimage will tell you how it will print on how much paper.  (see image 104)
It is saying 2 x 2, meaning to sheets to cover the horizontal and 2 for the vertical It's hard to see in the screen snap; top left corner of the image.

5)Now put 4 sheets in the printer and print.

6) You can print single sections if you need to.  See screen snaps 106 and 107
If this doesn't work for you, let me know. I'll make a video.

I forgot to mention, if you want to use 8.5 x 11 paper, that's fine. It will just require more sheets to complete the task.

Thanks Fred ... but it is confusing for me. Seems it will not show the whole layout on screen ( similar to image below from another software I looked at )

.... or maybe I'm not doing it correctly.

I rarely used Poster, and what I did was use some plain copy paper and make a test run.
Maybe someone else is more familiar with is.
Sorry
