Description:

PosteRazor - Make your own poster!

The PosteRazor cuts a raster image into pieces which can afterwards be printed out and assembled to a poster.

As input, the PosteRazor takes a raster image. The resulting poster is saved as a multipage PDF document. An easy to use, wizard like user interface guides through 5 steps.

1.9.5 is a preview version of the upcoming PosteRazor 2. It is the Qt port of the good old PosteRazor 1 (see http://posterazor.sourceforge.net/). After user tests and hopefully feedback, and with a few new features, PosteRazor 2 will be released.

Thanks for the app. Its easy and helpful.

Is this app made using Qt? I am on KDE 4.6 RC1.

Please use KDE 4 icons (not KDE 3) and better file chooser and native theme.

Its all taste. Can't say not good work :)

Hi, thank you for your great program! I've translated en.ts file to russian, could you please add it to your project? There is link: http://berks.narod.ru/ru_RU.ts
PS: There is a typo in "You want to use whole paper sheets and specify how many of them of them you want to use"
PSS: I can't get drag & drop to work in linux version. I'm using openSUSE 11.1, qt 4.4.3, posterazor compiled with simple "qmake; make"

Ouch... believe it or not. Only today I saw your comment. Qt-Apps did not notify me about it. I would love to add your translation to PosteRazor, thanks a lot for your effort! However, the link is not valid, anymore. Would you mind reposting it?

Thanks also for notifying the typo. Drag and Drop was not yet implemented in PosteRazor 1.9.5. It is implemented in the current head.

Best Regards,
Alessandro

Oh, indeed. Thanks for notifying me. That's actually a good reason to release a 1.9.6 version, soon :)

For the meantime:
The current snapshot builds qith Qt 4.5. Download: http://github.com/aportale/posterazor/zipball/master

hi, we used your program a while for printing 1:1 copies of large scanned documents (i.e. size of 4 x A4). In that case, the only problem we had, was that the user always had to specify the output size manually. it would be nice if posterazor would detect the correct output size (4 x 1 A4) using the available dpi of the input image (either through reading image metadata or user input (worst case))

maybe other users miss this too..? for the rest, it does the job quite well :)

Nice to hear from a user :)

The option "Size in percent" in step 4 is actually supposed to provide that feature. PosteRazor considers DPI and amount of pixels of the image in order to determine the poster image size in centimeters.
If you set that value to 100%, you should get the original size of the document (unless there are bugs).

Did you try that?

Cheers,
Alessandro

eh.. you're right :) we somehow missed that.. indeed, when I select 100%, the other parameters are set accordingly. except, in our case we still have to adjust the number of pages manually since our input is not perfect (if the sheet is scanned in a slightly skewed way or it is in fact 4xA4 + a few centimeter, but for printing, you still want it to fit on 4 pages to save paper ;) so now the page value is for example 4.093, by clicking on the down arrow it changes to 4.0, maybe some automatic snapping to whole pages only would be interesting, but once again, I'm not sure you want your application to support that :) a lot of users probably don't need that

sorry for bothering about the dpi, it does work!

I already thought about such automatic corrections. But then I came to the conclusion that in many cases such magic may irritate users more than it helps them.

But depending on the amount requests, I will of course put this feature on my TODO list :)
