  • Right click to select Picture Toolbar
  • Select Compress images
  • Click All images in document
  • Click Apply and you are ready to print.

Printing A3 colour

  • Select the printer first – \\COLL-PRINT\FOLLOWME-COL
  • In the bottom right hand side of the print window you will see the option to “Scale to paper size”. Select this and choose ISO A3 from the drop-down list.
  • Go to “Properties” and go through each tab in turn, sizing to ISO A3 wherever required.
  • Your document will now be sized up to A3 and is ready to print.
  • You will be able to select “Print Preview” in the Finishing tab and have a look at your work in A3 before you go ahead and print.
