Tips for Printing
Currently (April 2006), we are working on more effective solutions for printing high-resolution pages. For now, however, follow the steps below to get a readable printed page.
If You Want to Print the Whole Page
- Select the low-resolution image from the header by clicking on the “Lo Res” link (if this link is not active, you are already looking at the lower resolution image). You should be able to print this image from your browser on letter-sized paper.
If You Want to Print Only Part of the Page
- Arrange the article so that you can see the complete article on the screen. To get more screen space (Microsoft Windows), press F11 to view the Full Screen (and get a little more space). (Press [F11] again to get the tool bar back.)
- Change the screen resolution (Settings->Control Panel->Display->Settings) to get a larger or smaller view of the page.
- When all is ready, press “Print Screen” to put the image in the computer's memory.
- Open a new document in your word processor (Microsoft Word, for example) and click the Paste icon. The screen image of the newspaper article will appear on the page. To get a larger image, click on the image and then drag from the corners to make the image bigger. If the page is set up for landscape printing, the paper will be wider and one can drag the image further. Select File->Page Setup to change the printing orientation to landscape.
Copy the Image to Your Hard Disk
Finally, the preferred solution is to copy the image to your hard disk and use an imaging program (Photoshop, etc.) to print it. To do so,
- Right-click on the image (Internet Explorer for Windows), and select Save Picture As...
- Save the image to your hard disk (wherever you wish).
- Open the image in your imaging program (Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint, etc.). You can also open it in Windows Image and Fax Viewer. Each of these programs will allow you to resize the image (check the Help section in your program), and you can either print the entire resized image or else crop out the part you want.
