How can I enlarge the image from 100% to 125 or 150%?

If you have a paper copy of the image,

Copying Documents or Photos

 

If you do not have a paper copy (and the image is stored on your computer),

Use a printing program to print the image in the size you want.

 

For example:

 

Standard setup using Page Setup:

Start Paint > Open the photo / file to be printed >

File > Hover over Print > Page Setup >

Under Paper >> Select Size (of Paper) > Select Source (Tray) >

Under Orientation >> Select Portrait or Landscape >

Under Margins >> Select desired margins (Borderless / zero margins availability depends on printer) >

Under Centering >> Select Horizontal and / or Vertical as necessary >

Under Scaling >> Select Adjust to size (percentage of 100%) OR Fit to (“Shrink to fit”)

 

Remember that the Paper Size must accomodate the Scaling (size of print) you select.

The size of the print output, including fonts (text), is controlled within the program you use to submit the job to the printer.

 

Browsers, Document editors and viewers, and photo printing software provide a form of Print Preview.  The setting may also be called Printing Preferences, Page Setup, Properties, or similar.

 

Examples:

 

Firefox > File > [Print] > Print Preview >

Scale: Select Percentage OR Shrink to Fit

Page Setup > tab Format & Options (wording varies)

 

 

  • Shrink to fit page Width:

Setting is useful to control text / images that might otherwise extend beyond the sides.

NOTE:  Ensure Scale is NOT set to zero

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Open Edge browser > open your URL / webpage > Settings (three dots, upper right) >

Print > More Settings

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Your browser window view can be adjusted (prior to printing):

 

PC

Ctrl +    (Control key and Plus key at the same time > page contents larger)

Ctrl -     (Control key and Dash key together > page contents smaller)

Ctrl 0    (Control key and 0 (zero) > reset page to Default)

 

Mac OS

** Cmd +      larger 

     Cmd     smaller

 

** Command key
