I have scanned a jpeg image of my line drawing, which is 8" x 8" and fits on one 8.5 x 11" paper. I have doubled the size of the image in photoshop, resizing it in image size.. How can I print my design over four sheets of paper?

I don't believe that Photoshop, Elements, or Lightroom have that capability.

CS5 does not seem to have this feature. After over an hour looking through every reference book I had I found a solution in Altered Photo Artistry. I began with my scanned image (on the 8.5 x 11 paper) I enlarged the width in image size to (a multiple of 8") 16", keeping aspect ratio linked. Then I used rectangular marquee tool to select each quadrant, copy, save and name. them. I could then print each quadrant. This is one of the few things PC's do better than Macs. My pc has a tiling option when I choode print.
