|Steps to Follow:
To make a poster about the characteristics of living things on the Poster Wizard:
Step 1: Pick Your Poster Size.
Choose a size that will best fit your poster layout. In this case, a horizontal poster makes it easier to display many images. Gather your computer images of examples of living things and upload them.
Step 2: Pick a Background Color.
You want the color to enhance, but not overpower your information or clip art images so keep the background white.
Step 3: Add a Border.
Before you add your title, pictures or information, decide if you need a border to highlight or unify your theme. The green jagged border at the top and bottom of your poster is a good choice in this case.
Step 4: Add a Title.
Add your title, "It’s Alive," using black quick letters with neon quick letters on top for a drop shadow effect. Then, add your subheading, "6 Characteristics of Living Things," using red quick stick foam letters.
Step 5: Add Images.
Now, you can add your computer images. You may have to resize them to fit on your poster properly.
Step 6: Add Text Boxes.
List the individual characteristics of living things as a text box. Use a color font and delete the border and drop shadow.
Step 7: Add Shapes.
Now is when you can add your creative elements to your poster. Add neon flower shapes by your images. Use black vinyl letters to name the living things. You can also add a pink pointing finger shape to point to the characteristics of living things.
Step 8: Now, you are ready to SAVE and FINISH.
When you are finished, your poster will be sent to you by email. Then you can decide how you would like to print it out.
