Enlarging an Image to Make a Poster

 
You can enlarge an image and copy it to multiple sheets of paper to create a large poster by joining the sheets together. There are two methods for copying to multiple sheets of paper; specifying the copy ratio only, and specifying the number of sheets of paper to use.
A maximum of one set can be copied at one time.
You cannot create a poster using custom size paper, envelopes, transparencies, or tab paper.
Place your original on the platen glass. The Poster mode cannot be used if the original is placed in the feeder.
Copy Ratio and Paper Settings
The following table indicates an estimate of the original size and copy ratio for different size posters and the optimal paper size and number of sheets to use.
Refer to this table when entering the copy ratio and when specifying the paper size and number of sheets.

A3 / 3 sheets
You can create a poster using an original size and copy ratio not indicated in this table, but the maximum original size is A3 and the maximum copy ratio is 400%.
Since the poster is output after being divided into the optimal number of sheets, fewer sheets may be output than the number you specify.
The poster size after the copied sheets are joined will be slightly smaller than the value in the table.
TIPS
Joining the copied sheets
The copied sheets have areas where the images overlap ( and ), as indicated in the diagram below. When joining the sheets together, cut these areas to an appropriate width and glue them together.
The width of the areas where the images overlap differs according to the copy ratio and paper size.

Specifying the Copy Ratio

Specify the ratio for enlarging the image to create a poster. The optimal paper size and number of sheets are automatically selected according to the original size and copy ratio.

Specifying the Paper Size to Use and Number of Sheets
