  1. OPTIONALlogo or image HERE Template for a 56 x 42 poster Put your name and the names of other contributors here.The names and addresses of the institutions go here. OPTIONALLogo or image here Text Sizes Importing Photographs template Research Heading • To use this template, select the slide you find useful and the delete the others. Then on the template slide itself, delete and move items, alter colors, fonts, etc. as you wish. • Or follow these steps to create your own layout and design: • Select a new blank slide • Define size (56 x 42 maximum) in “page setup” (under Design View in Office 2007) • Show rulers (under “View”) to help you accurately size your columns. • Create your own background (light colors print best) or simply leave it white. • See additional handouts for design tips: http://www.cornellcollege.edu/library/ctl/ams/handouts.shtml This template uses Arial in several text sizes. Studies actually recommend using Serif typefaces (such as Garamond or Times Roman) for extended text (because it’s easier to read) and San Serif typeface for titles (because they standout clearly). You may select any typeface you like but remember that your goal should be clear communication and ease of reading. Don’t use too many different fonts though. Your typography should not compete with your content. Figure X Use color to highlight important points and to direct the reader’s attention to an area. Group items that go together close to each other. • For printing: use high resolution images (tiff or jpeg) • Avoid images downloaded from the web • Use the “Insert” command (instead of copying and pasting from an image). Go to INSERT>PICTURE>FROM FILE • Final Reminders: • If you are going to print your poster, get it to the AMS one week before you need it. • Define your size before you design, and look over your final poster at 100% to avoid pixilation • Allow at least a 1” border---our plotter does not print to the edge • PowerPoint Preview is approximate. Avoid crowding your right margins lest words or images become displaced (usually by dropping down a line) • (Printing only) If you use many layers, WordArt, PowerPoint or raster image backgrounds, you may have trouble printing your poster on our plotter. Saving a PDF copy of you work, then pasting the PDF back into a correctly sized, blank slide may solve the problem. Allow time, so we can help you work out any formatting issues. If you do use an image from the web,however, be especially cautious with scaling. Enlarging an image may introduce pixelization artifacts, so be sure to examine your whole poster at 100%. What you’ll see is likely what you’ll get at printing time. Figure X Importing Tables & Graphs Changing the poster’s column layout Depending on how you layout your poster, you may want to change the column layout configuration. You can still use this template, but rearrange the column. Try selecting all the items in a column and then use your “page up/down & left/right” keys to move the whole column pixel by pixel in one direction. (Hold your shift key down to select multiple text / image boxes.) The proportional width of these columns is about right. There are studies that show that it is harder to read text when the column is too wide. If you need help To import charts and graphs from Excel, Word or other applications, go to EDIT>COPY. copy your chart and come back to PowerPoint. Go to EDIT>PASTE and paste the chart on the poster. You can scale your charts and tables proportionally by holding down the Shift key and dragging in or out one of the corners. Bring your work to the Academic Media Studio, 127 Cole Library, for help. You are also welcome work on your poster on one of the Studio computers. Drop in 3-11 p.m. (M-TH) or contact Holly Martin Huffman for an appointment. We’re always glad help you.
