Suggestions for downloading and printing

    Many of the artwork pages are available  in PDF format.  In order to view and print them, you will need to download a free PDF reader.  I think that you'll be please with the new larger and clearer printing that this format provides.  The JPEG and GIF formats will continue to be available.  When printing from PDF select "Fit to Page" which will make certain that the artwork is printed at the largest possible size.

Free PDF Reader

    The original artwork is either in JPEG or GIF format. You need to be certain that your browser will display files in both of these formats and that your browser cache is set to a large enough size for these files.

     In order to conserve paper and not print an extra sheet with each page, set the top and left margins of your printer (usually this is under "File- Printer Setup" or "File - Page Setup") to zero inches or to as close to zero as your browser will allow.  Also delete all text from the Headers and Footers boxes.

    You can display the artwork with your screen size set to 640 x 480 pixels, however they will be easier to work with if you re-size your screen to 800 x 600 pixels.  (In Windows, right click on your desktop and select Properties, Settings, and Desktop area tabs.)

     All of the artwork except the masks can be printed in Portrait mode. Some of the masks need to be printed in Landscape mode.

     Here are some printing suggestion specifically for printing on the Mac:

     First, wait until the entire picture is loaded on the screen.  To shrink the artwork slightly so it fits nicely across one sheet of paper, go to the File menu and select Page Setup; then type 85% in the box for reducing/enlarging or scale selection. Click on OK, then print. (You can experiment with the percentage by using the Print Preview feature to see how it will print, then adjust if necessary.)  To print full-sized, but avoid having the right side of the artwork being chopped off, go to the File menu and select Page Setup; then select the Landscape/Sideways option. Click OK, then print. After printing, you will need to do some cutting and taping to assemble the page.

    If you still have trouble printing or are unable to print in color, download each page to a separate file on floppy disks (in Windows, right click on the image and then select "save image as", with the Mac, hold down the mouse button until the download options appear), then take the disks to a quick printer (like Kinko's) to print a set in color for you to use.
