Ethan T. July 2, 2016. I would NOT install DDPB on a Windows XP computer. In fact, I avoid any software that requires.NET 3.0.The present invention is directed to a method and apparatus for forming a composite image, and more particularly, to a method and apparatus for forming a composite image wherein the image is formed on a substrate which is then laterally processed to form the composite image.
With the advent of more advanced electronic techniques, there has been a corresponding increase in the desire to form electronic xe2x80x9cpersonalizedxe2x80x9d pictures. For example, a customer may desire to have a picture of their child or pet printed, and this can be accomplished with currently available electronic printers. However, such printers often require the customer to have access to a digital camera, scanner or other electronic image capturing device, and such devices typically require the customer to have a large amount of knowledge about electronic image capturing devices and image capturing. Further, such devices require the customer to be able to correctly position the item being imaged. For example, if the customer desires to have a picture of their own image printed on a web page for display at a later time, the customer must correctly position the web page so that the image is properly displayed.
Other devices are available which allow the customer to xe2x80x9cprintxe2x80x9d on a pre-printed web page. This requires the customer to have a web browser, use a computer, and correctly position the web page and the picture onto the web page. This method also requires the customer to obtain the image which is to be printed on the web page. The customer has no control over the creation of the printed image, which can often be a poor quality photograph or portion of a photograph.
One known approach of printing on a web page is the bubble-jet printer. One problem with the bubble-jet printer is that the customer must correctly position the item to be printed on the web page 0b46394aab
