Rasterbating

So I wanted something for my bedroom, because my walls were pretty bare and have been for some time. I knew I didn't want to spend a lot of money and I wanted the pictures that I wanted that I knew I couldn't find in print/for the price. So I was looking online and I came up on this website http://arje.net/rasterbator

Quote:
Tiled printing is a method that computer programs use to enable users to print images larger than a standard page, recently popularized by a program called The Rasterbator. A tiled printing program overlays a grid on the printed image in which each cell (or tile) is the size of a printed page and then prints each tile. A person can then arrange the tiles to reconstruct the full image.

Tiled printing has been widespread since the days of mainframe computers. Programs were available to convert images to ASCII art that, when printed large enough and viewed sufficiently far away, appeared to be smoothly shaded. Modern software may use halftoning to achieve a similar effect.

Another form of tiled printing, inspired by continuous feed printers, involves making a long message of letters, possibly with inline graphics of the same height, and printing it sideways over several pages to make a banner. This type of printing is usually associated with The Print Shop, a 1980s software package.

Since high resolution images are used to create the prints, a large amount of ink is used in the process of making tiled prints in the past. Inexpensive ink jet printers now allow people to make tiled printouts that do not sacrifice the original image's resolution. These decorations are sometimes called rasterbations, after a popular tiled printing program, "The Rasterbator." The Rasterbator program accepts users' images and divides them into a grid format. Users can specify how big the final product should be, in terms of pages. The Rasterbator then produces PDF images that when printed out, form the entire picture.
Basically you upload a picture to the program and it spits out a PDF file of you picture, 'rasterized' or tiled and you open the PDF in Adobe Reader and print it off. It prints it off in 9-25 or more Pages, Color or Black and White, your choice.

I did 3 trial versions and I decided that I'm going to spend a little extra and put the PDF on a Flash Drive and take it to Office Depot/Staples and get it printed by their good printers on some thicker paper so it looks better, which still won't cost that much, If anybody is interested and wants to know how much it will cost me, ill post it in the thread. Kinda cool, just thought I'd share if anybody here is interested in it.

I'm a graphic designer now. What do you do now, if you don't mind me asking. I'm always curious.
