Resizing your poster to fit the dimension requirements

​The simplest way to edit the dimensions of a poster is using a slideshow editor such as powerpoint or keynote. Here we’ll show you step by step details on how to change your dimensions.

Powerpoint instructions
  1. Select the Design tab of the toolbar ribbon.

  2. Select Slide Size icon near the far right end of the toolbar.

3. Select Custom Slide Size.

4. Change the Width and Height to be larger than the minimum size guidelines above (26.46cm and 15.88cm) and click okay.

5. Click Ensure Fit to make sure the resizing doesn’t stretch your poster in an undesirable way.

6. Repeat to create the preview poster with half of the width and height.

We would like to thank the Photonics Online Meetup 2021 Committee for kindly sharing these instructions with us.
