PosterArtist is a poster creation software program designed to be used by all levels of users to create professional-posters, banners and signage in just four easy steps. This template driven poster creation tool for PCs was developed by Canon specifically to create large-format posters quickly and easily. PosterArtist provides over 200 professionally designed templates, and over 1000 royalty free images and clip art that can be quickly customized and outputted to a variety of media. You can even import your own images such as company logos and digital camera photos. With PosterArtist, now you can quickly customize and print posters, banners, signs, and eye catching displays.
PosterArtist includes an auto design feature to make printing even easier - just specify your layout elements and the software will automatically generate a variety of designs for you to choose from. With PosterArtist, you can integrate variable data, enlarge scanned data, import presentations and other office documents, and bring in images directly from most digital cameras.
The auto design feature combines a Dynamic Layout Engine with built in professional design expertise. This is a combination of the client's design ideas and preferences incorporated into a database of color palettes and templates developed by professional designers. The combination of these two creates a selection of posters with an optimum color scheme and layouts. Users with limited design expertise and/or production skills can easily create high quality posters by harnessing the professional human expertise incorporated into PosterArtist.
After your poster has been fully designed to meet your needs, the design check features will make sure there are no design flaws within the poster. design check will analyze aspects of the completed poster, such as color schemes, superimposed objects ant font size and alert the user of any potential design issues.
The security settings feature provides restrictions on an owner's creative material by incorporating limitations into open templates. Sample images and templates can be registered with PosterArtist to provide security and control over content.
The page capture feature gives users the flexibility to send documents from Microsoft Word, Excel, and Adobe Acrobat directly into PosterArtist templates. With pages capture, documents are brought into a thumbnail screen where the user can drag-and-drop them into PosterArtist 2008.
