Digital images created like an A4 slide in JPEG format has had clear text when font is size 12 or higher. Digital posters can be in portrait or landscape format, and you can use any software you like to create your poster. We also encourage you to think about maximizing the accessibility of your poster using image descriptions, inclusive communications and colour considerations.
