Hello all,

I'm a new basic user of Pixelmator and I would like to divide a pano picture in 3 or 4 equal parts to make a tiled print on 3 or 4 sheets...

Can someone help me doing this precisely with Pixelmator ?

Thx.

Hi!

My guess is that you would like to use the slice tool here.

Here are two tutorials showing how to slice your images.

Hello,

Thx for your quick answer. It works... And I was able to export 3 JPEGs from my big file.
This will be good enough for was I will do here.

I did not explain it, but my original file is a 16bit TIFF in prophoto RGB color space file and I want to print it on my Epson 3800 to make a triptic.

IS there a tool able to keep the 16Bits Prophoto space after I cut my original file ?

Tanks !

The slice tool is designed with web images in mind, so in your case you might want to use the ordinary selection/marquee tools to create your 3 seperate images. if you copy these selections on different layers or maybe better into new documents and use regular export rather than web eksport you will be able to stay in 16-bit.

Thanks Sebastian, I'll try to find a tuto about the way I can do this precisely.

Have a nice day.
