I used Microsoft Visio to enlarge the photo, as it will let me print portions of the photo onto 8.5 x 11 sheets. You may be able to do this in Microsoft Word or other programs, but I haven’t checked into it.

First you need to calculate how large you want the portrait to be. Once you do that, you need to get exact calculations by pulling out your high school algebra to be sure that the size you want maintains the same ratio of the original photo.
