Hi guys

I am trying to print a large document containing photos. I thought I would be able to print it 2 pages at a time (duplex) but no. Some of the pages don't contain hi res photos, hence the file size is small and I am able to print them. Many pages, however, are quite large and they refuse to print. I am using an HP 2200d with default memory (don't recall the size as I have had the printer several years). OS is XP SP3. I realise I might be able to add more memory to the printer but I am not sure it is worth it even if it is possible (old machine, 1 off job). I also realise that I could go back and replace the hi res photos with a lower res version but as there are about 150 pages to do that would be a huge task. Is there a way that I can print directly using the copmputer's memory rather than the printer's memory?

Thanks in advance for any help :thanks
Michael

You could use the PrintRange, selecting a portion of the dcument at a time.

Put the document file on a cd and take it to a commercial printer?
May be cheaper than the expense you may need to upgrade your printer memory (plus ink and paper!).
