Abstract If you are used to making "slide shows" in PowerPoint you will need to adjust your thinking - a Poster Presentation is one big print instead of a series of slides. Also, the optimal colors are the reverse of projected slides - white or light colored background with dark text works best. Introduction Replace the text in these columns with your own text. You can copy/paste text from Word or other PowerPoint files. Body text of 36 point Times New Roman is ideal. Text shouldnt be smaller than 24 pt., this will keep your poster legible from normal viewing distance. Arial and Times New Roman, Symbol and Wingdings are the recommended fonts City Names typefaces (i.e., Geneva, Monaco, New York, etc.) will not print - Courier will be substituted. Methods & Materials Use the text box tool to add new text boxes as needed. It is better to have each section in its own text box rather then just one column . Results Scan resolution should be 100-120 dpi at the actual size the image will appear on the poster. Save images to be inserted into your poste as TIFF files (.tif); greyscale or RGB. (CMYK images may not print color correctly.) No layers on placed images. No clipping paths on placed images. No COMPRESSION on any files. JPG Files Should Not Be Inserted into Your Poster!!! (If you have a jpg file, open it in Photoshop and resave as .tif file before Inserting into PowerPoint.) GIF Files Should Not Be Inserted into Your Poster!!! (If you have a gif file, open it in Photoshop, convert mode from Index Color to RGB then resave as .tif file before Inserting into PowerPoint.) To INSERT .tif files into your poster: 1. From the INSERT menu 2. Go to PICTURE 3. Select FROM FILE Conclusions To Add Tables or Graphs: - To Insert graphs or tables from Microsoft Excel or Word, select the Insert menu, point to Insert Object, click the appropriate application. Or COPY then PASTE SPECIAL. - Files from Non-Microsoft applications use SAVE AS or EXPORT to create a PICT, TIF, or EPS file then insert into your PPT document on the Insert menu, point to Insert Picture, click From File.

Due to the page size limitations inherent in PowerPoint - the custom page size of this document is: 33.5 x 56. When printed at Visual Art Services the file will be scaled up to 36 x 60 (3feet x 5 feet). If you follow the font size recommendations you will have poster presentation that is legible from the proper viewing distance.
