How to Create a Research Poster

Image Quality Guidelines

There is an inverse relationship between print size and resolution (if you increase the print size the resolution decreases and vice-versa). To get good results when inserting an image into a research poster, the image should be printed at a resolution of at least 300 dots per inch (dpi). Images that look good online may not be high enough resolution to look good in print at the size you want them to be.
