There are tools designed to make posters out of multiple pieces of paper
like this. LibreOffice Writer is not the first thing I'd try for this. None
of the LibreOffice apps are good fits, but LibreOffice Draw would come

Make 1 image span 4 pages in LibreOffice Draw:
1. Create a new Drawing
2. place/paste in your image.
3. put the upper right 1/4 of the image into the first page.  You can scale
the image to fit the page, note the scaling, then double it.
4. duplicate the page, then shift the image to the upper right portion.
5. duplicate more pages for the lower left and lower right of the image.

If you don't have LibreOffice Draw and can't get it, you can do something
similar by placing an image into a full page box, then opening the Image
properties and using scale and crop to achieve the same effect.
LibreOffice Writer won't let you have an image bigger than the page, so you
have to crop it, it's a far less visual and mouse experience, but ends up
with the same effect.

1. All printers have edge loss... areas close to the edge of the page that
won't print. be sure to overlap the center edge a bit so you don't end up
with gaps when you try to align them.
2. Assuming your image has the focus at the center: the seams will be less
noticeable if you make it 9 images... so the seams aren't going right
though the middle.

I'd like to create a 4 sheet of a PNG in Libre Writer.

In Writer, I followed these isntrctuons...
Format> Page SetUp>Columns and chose 2

Then, using the mouse I grabbed the center box in the PNG and dragged that
down halfway on the screen but that just compresses the graphic like a
circus mirror.

I then chose Print and in there I can choose Pages per sheet (default to
set at 1) so I typed in 4 where that 1 was displayed and clicked Print to
PDF which saves that PNG in the top left corner with 3 others corners

Is there another step needed  to "duplicate" or "multiply" that PNG from
the top left corner so it's in all 3 other other areas (now blank) on the
single sheet?

Thank you.
