Create your poster from scratch by using PowerPoint or a similar design program.
IMPORTANT: Change the size of your slide before working on the poster. This will ensure that images and text do not blur. 24" by 36" and 36" by 48" are the most common sizes, but follow instructor/conference guidelines.
Resize the slide using PowerPoint 2016:
WINDOWS INSTRUCTIONS: Design tab >> Slide size >> Custom slide size >> Specify width and height >> Choose "Maximize."
MAC INSTRUCTIONS: Design tab >> Slide size >> Page setup >> Specify width and height.
