Use of Images from the Internet

Use of images from the Internet

  • Be very careful about copying and pasting images and graphics from the Internet into your poster. Most images that are available on the Internet have resolutions of 72 dpi, which is far below the recommended 150 dpi for printing.
  • If you download images from the Web, be aware that enlarging them on your poster could create a printed image that is quite blurry and pixilated.
