Printing an image across multiple pages on macOS

We use our squad wall to display a lot of information and often we’ll want to print out an image across a number of pages so it’s extra large to visualise – for example a screen flow, or a mock up or a chart.

I was trying to work out a way to easily scale an image across numerous pages to stick together on the wall and I found the easiest way is first make sure the image or thing you want to print is saved as a PDF (easy to do in macOS Preview), then open the PDF in the free Adobe Acrobat Reader DC app.

This gives you a poster print option which scales the PDF across numerous pages:

Very handy.
