This question already has an answer here:

I have a very tall image (880x9445 pixels) which I would like to print (specifically, to PDF).

But when I print the image it always comes out as one page; there does not seem to be any way to scale its width to a page and thus end up with multiple pages.

I tried using the image viewer and GIMP, is there anything else that will give me this option?

You can use PosteRazor.

  1. Start the Software Center.
  2. Search for PosteRazor
  3. Install it.

PosteRazor allows to import an image and then takes you through a wizard that allows to cut it in pieces, depending on the type of paper you will be printing on.
