The Poster Creator cuts a raster image into pieces which can afterwards be printed out and assembled to a poster. The resulting poster is saved as a multipage PDF document. An easy to use, wizard like user interface guides you through the 5 steps.

The PDF output is implemented with the maximum image quality and a good compression in mind. A source image is embedded once in the PDF document and referenced from every tile page. Image color types remain unchanged. As compression method, the PDF "FlateDecode filter" (zip) is used. If a Jpeg image is used as input it gets directly embedded into the document without recompression. The PDF version is 1.4, so any Acrobat Reader version 4 and higher will be able to read the resulting document.
