Hi Guys,

Usually, I use powerpoint to make my posters because it was easy. But recently a friend recommended Inkscape (it is a knock-off version of illustrator) because you could make betterlooking posters. His posters look amazing but the Inkscape is very different

So I was just wondering what software do you use to make posters? Or are we all boring powerpoint users?

Yeah, I had an issue with this quite recently. We had a poster competition and I was using Powerpoint, and then I looked at some of the other students' and they looked amazing, and most said they used other software. I'm hunting down something that isn't horrendously expensive too.

Hey all! Just to say, my posters have always worked fine with Powerpoint... I even (wait for it...) won a prize one time! BUT... maybe it differs across fields... maybe if you're in computer sciences or something very technical more sophisticated graphics are more appreciated...

I normally use Word -- stick with what you know! And recently won an award for my poster!

In hindsight, I agree with you both (tudor and nutty) about powerpoint and word being good.

I was trying to make a few good infographics to explain my concept and making diagrams/infographics in Office is pretty horrible. I tried both Inkscape and illustrator, while very good for graphics they are woeful for text and making a poster. I would clarify and say that if you want some nice graphics, make them outside powerpoint and then just import them. So much easier.
