A lie-in, banana pancakes for breakfast, and time to try out new ideas.
For a long time now, I wanted to have a big enlargement of a photo to put on my wall.
But after getting a quote from a printer here I gave up on the idea.
Until this morning, when I found a way to make funky posters at home, for free!
All you need is a printer and The Rasterbator. This is a programme that turns photos into huge black and white dotted pictures. You can download it for free here.
Once it is downloaded, choose a picture and open it in Rasterbator. If the programme doesn't want to open make sure you have extracted all the files from the ZIP file.
You can choose the number of prints that make up your poster, and you can choose the size and color of the dots.
Then print it (I think you will need Adobe Reader to be able to open it), glue it together and enjoy!
Here are the different pages. My printer made a small white frame around each pic. I cut it of and glued the sheets with masking tape at the back:
And here is my new poster:
Have a wonderful day!
Lots of love,
