  • For image, pictures or graphs, the suggested resolution is 300 dpi. To check that they appear correctly on the final/printed version, zoom in at 100% and check the images, pictures and graphs. It is better to use high resolution or high-quality images/graphs when creating the poster and then convert it to PDF (as PDF files can be compressed).

  • On light backgrounds (white, yellow, light blue), use dark fonts (black, navy blue, dark green).
  • On dark backgrounds (blue, purple), use light fonts (white, yellow, cyan etc).

Avoid The Following:

  • A total file size which exceeds 10 MB.
  • The use of red or green fonts or backgrounds as they are difficult to read.
  • Stretching the images manually as they will lose quality when enlarged.
