The Adobe Acrobat reader provides image manipulation functions (print, zoom, scroll, save) which runs on the clients machine. Adobe Acrobat reader provides extensive printing options allowing a user to scale the A3 image and print selected parts of the image.
To use the PDF functionality, users must have Adobe Acrobat reader version 5 or above installed.
The image should download quickly. Using the + or — tools on the toolbar at the top of the page, you can zoom in and out of the images.
The images can be printed out on most printers. For best results, A3 size paper should be used.
