Awesome Things to do With Photographs

IF YOU TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS YOU NEED TO SEE THIS WEBSITE....Photojojo is a website packed full of very innovative things from around the world wide web on photo tips, DIY projects, and info on photo gear.

Here are 2 cool free tools to create posters from your photographs.

The Rasterbator is a program I had used several years ago it creates huge, rasterized images from any image source (photographs, cartoons, etc...). Upload an image, print the resulting multi-page pdf file and assemble the pages into extremely cool looking poster up to 20 meters in size. It prints photographs in newsprint dots in black and white or coloured...you decide. I used to print huge posters up of groups of my students and put them around my multimedia lab. Once the pieces are printed out you put them together like a puzzle, tape the backs together and VOILA a cool poster to put up on your wall (with or without lines through the final poster).


Photojojo listed another similar web tool called Blockposters.com, you load up any photograph or image to the web and will turn it into a poster that you can print off using your home/office printer. Tell it how many sheets you want to use, upload your pic, and seconds later it’ll spit back a pdf.

Both Rasterbator and Blockposters are good. But they cannot work with digital cameras directly.
So there is other .

Thanks for the link. Proposter looks like a great option and has the flexibility as your said to print straight from a digital camera or from a scanner. At 19.95 the price isn't bad either.

Cheers
