Sorry to bombard you with questions, but, I saw you reply to a post about posters? You said you use Google slides, and you set the slide to be the size of the poster you want. My question is how do you do that exactly?
I am glad you asked. TEACHERS! TOO LONG we have been held captive by the sinister Big Poster Lobbyists. However, if what you are looking for is a quick and easy poster with a few fonts and pictures, Google Slides could not make it easier, please allow me to show you.
(I know that in some ways I am shooting myself in the foot because now because any future posters in my TPT store won’t sell as well, BUT Google Slides is amazing and I like helping people.)
Step one, open a new slide deck.
Step two, File –> Page Setup.
Step three, Custom Dimensions.
(Whatever size you WANT. I typically leave an inch as bleed room.)
Step four, MAKE THAT POSTER.
(You have a range of background colors, shapes, fonts…etc. Google will also let you insert pictures automatically.)
- If you’re making a large poster, just because the picture you insert looks good on your screen does NOT mean it will print well. Make sure any graphics are big enough.
MaxDepotBodegawill have an easier time with a PDF file than a PPTX/Google Slides file.
- Under the “View” menu, it will let you zoom in and out of the slide when it gets that big, letting you fine-tune certain parts of your poster.
Boom! Poster made! I hope that helps. Feel free to send me another ask if you have any questions.
