    My printer is also a copier and can resize up to 200%. I then tape the single sheets together to make the bigger pattern. The only drawback is that the line thickness also increases.

    Simple.

    1- scan the picture and save the file on your computer.

    2- open word and insert picture into new document.

    3- size it to your needs.

    4- print

    If you need it bigger then 1 page, use excel and simple stretch the picture as big as you like. It will print across multiple pages.

    Most of what I do is the size of a sheet of paper. So i will just right click on the image i want to print and select print. A window will pop up with a bunch of size options. i pick the one that is 8 x 10 and print it. It resizes itself.

    I have "Paint" on my computer and re-sizing in that is simple.

    Hi,
    I scan the pattern and then use a photo programme, even one like IrfanView, which is FREE, to adjust the size using, generally, the Image tab (resize).
    Works good enough for me.
    Hope it helps.

    If you have the capability to scan the patterns. Get a copy of rapid resizer or posterazor.

    You will need a method to scan the drawing into your computer before software can resize it.

    If you do not already own a scanner that is hooked up to your computer take the book to an office supply store. Tell them what patterns you want and what size of enlargement you want. Around here it is only a few cents a page to do this.

    resizing

    Hi, I received today a book called Wild & Wacky birdhouse and feeders.My question is, considering the patterns need to be enlarged some up to 200% what is a good resizing program to use, it must be simple I am not that computer savy. Any help will be most welcome.
    Thanks in advance
    Len

    I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

    Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

    What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

    Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

    I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

    Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
