Printing out 1911 Scottish census images

Another Scottish 1911 census tip - the two page long enumerators returns can be printed on one A4 page, but can be very difficult to read.

The easiest way to print them across two A4 pages is to open the image using Microsoft's Paint tool, and in Page Set Up go to the Scaling box - select Fit To and change the settings to 2 by 1. Print the page now and it will come out in two pages, each carrying one page of the census return!

Simples...!
