To print the current image, use File/Print or Ctrl+P. It's a good idea to preview the image first, via File/Print Preview, and adjust the printer settings if necessary, via File/Print Setup.
The current image is not re-rendered for the printer. The result depends on whether fit in window is enabled, as shown below:
|Fit in Window||Alignment||Scaling|
|Yes||Centered||The image is scaled to fill the page as much as possible, without changing its aspect ratio.|
|No||Upper-left corner||None. The image is printed at its actual size in pixels, and clipped if it doesn't fit on the page.|
Scaling up a low-resolution image to fill the page may result in a blocky printout. To avoid this, the recommended method is as follows:
Another option is to export a bitmap, and then use an external application such as Photoshop to print the bitmap. Try to avoid resizing the bitmap, as this may introduce unwanted artifacts. For large-format printers and/or extreme antialiasing factors, you should use the poster export to create the bitmap, otherwise you may run out of memory.
