The Rasterbator is an application which creates rasterized versions of images. The rasterized images can be printed and assembled into enormous or smaller posters it is all to you.

All traditional image formats are supported, like JPG, BMP, GIF, PNG and TIF. As a consequence, you can go rasterbate almost every image you have. With The Rasterbator there is no quality loss because it is pixel-based, but even after magnifying you can still perform some final retouching. The result will be available as a PDF file,  the default value for the output file is the file name and directory of the source file, except that the file suffix (such as .jpg) is replaced with .PDF, which assures the final print will look exactly the same as you can see and verify with any PDF viewer. Automatically, several pages will be generated to facilitate the printing process. The only prerequisite is that you have to have Acrobat Flash Player 7 installed.
