Printing an Image

As a further clarification for those of us who like to "understand";  
not just have something "work"; Think back to all of the programs  
that create a "print spool". They are just creating an image in  
memory of what is normally being seen on the screen and then using  
that "memory" image to do the printing. As Jacque was indicating,  
absolutely no need for anything to be visible in order to print it.  
In fact, since we usually see things at a 72 dpi resolution on our  
screens, this translation is absolutely necessary if we are to print  
at the much higher resolutions available with today's printers.
