    Hiya and Welcome

    What is it that you are actually trying to do? Is it a screensaver that you want with one of your pictures loading as the saver?

    Is it a peice of software that will enable you to do this? If so, do you know the name?

    Regards

    Okay

    To get the picture to be on your monitor, I assume as the wallpaper here, then try this.

    Programs | Accesories | Paint
    Open your picture, then go to File | Set as wallpaper. Choose which type, tile or centred. This will enable the picture to be on your desktop.

    Now, for the screensaver bit, I thought that you need a program to do this. I could be wrong. Have you got a program to do this?

    Are you wanting a slideshow type? Have a look here

    If you have another type of program, can you tell us what it is?

    Regards

    Okay

    Are you wanting to print the picture out that you had in Paint? If so, you can do it from Paint. Just load it in, and go to File | Print.

    Is that what you mean?

    Regards

    Okay

    When you put the picture in Paint, try going to File | PrintPreview. Is it all there? When you say "half the picture", do you mean that the printer prints out two sheets instead of just fitting it on one?

    Regards
