    Printing Graphic Files

    Is there any way to directly print large graphic files? I'am trying to print a 1700x2300 jpg file. If I set the frame dimensions to 1700x2300 and use an active picture object for the file, and use the print object/print zone method I just get garbled text in the printout! Help!....
    Ideally I'd just like to print the file without actually having to load it into an object...but I'll take any solution at this point.

    The only solution I can think of is to load it into an object, one of the picture objects will do it for you. Make sure resize is turned on so as to shrink the image down to the size of the picture object (you may have to manually calculate the resize at runtime, I had to for Imagizer). Then use the Printer Object to print it.

    Paul,
    Using this method will only print at the resolution displayed on the screen correct? I need it at the highest "fidelity" possible.

    Open the file in the windows XP picture viewer to print your graphics. It's better than MMF in that respect.
    Google the command to open the JPG in the picture viewer. This will print at the res you want.

    Re: Printing Graphic Files

    DJFuego,
    That's a brilliant idea!...After some Google research I have my program calling the graphic through XP Picture and fax viewer!
    However can I still call the work my own I wonder...

    Thanks

    I'm not sure if the picture app is on windows 2000 or comes as part of a servicepack for older versions of Windows. You may have to sell your product as compatible with XP only.

    I haven't used the other versions of windows for a long time but if you have your old cds grab a copy of MS Virutal Machine 2007 (FREE Download from Microsot) and install this. It's better than the Compatibility pack as you will be able to work from a Virtual windows 98, 95, 2000 machine to test your application from, You can also test your app on a virtual network if needed!

    Cool eh? Better than multi boot menu as you don't need to leave the cumfort of yout current Installed OS.
