im wondering what kind of software scroll sawers use , for enlarging, shrinking, patterns?

I just use a photo-copier and change copy ratio. Kinko's has a converter that you line up the original size with what you want & it tells you the ratio to use.

I use Paint.net It's a freeware program that works similar to Photoshop. If you use Windows there is a free paint program built in to it that will also work for simple shrinking and enlarging images.

I use Inkscape and it is free. :)

For just enlarging/shrinking, you may not need software at all. It is a built in function on most scanners/printers when using the copy function.

I use Rapid-Resizer which allows tile printing and hairline patterns in red which is much easier to see against a saw table and a black blade.

I do a page set up on my printer and I get nice patterns enlarged that way. I have to tape them together, but that's fine. Works good for me. Have a great evening Fay
