Printing to pdf using GIMP

This is to answer this reddit question: https://www.reddit.com/r/GIMP/comments/ ... rger_than/
1. You can scale image and set 300 dpi and set height to be 1200 since you want your print out to be 4 inches in height (Interpolation set to None).

2. File/Export As then choose PDF.
Here's a test.pdf of your image and specs.

3. Now when you open the pdf, it'll look like it's whole page but it's actually 4 inches high when you go and click the printer button.
Check out the print preview.
