The (rudely named but nonetheless useful) Rasterbator takes any image you give it (no more than 1Mb in size) and provides an Adobe Acrobat file which if printed can reach almost any size you like (if you have enough paper and enough toner). The biggest image produced so far was made up of “352 pages”:http://www.geocities.com/i337o/rasterbator.htm! Apparently the site has been used to produce a total of 324 015 square metres of pictures. There is a “gallery”:http://homokaasu.org/rasterbator/gallery.gas of images produced if you are curious (none of the first few are pornographic, the name of the site notwithstanding).
