Best program to use to create a A1 poster?

Question

+Peewee210    85

For some University work, I'm asked to do a A1 poster presentation. What would be the best program to use to create it on a A1 sheet? I was thinking Publisher, but I've never used it before. The University suggested Powerpoint, but I don't know how you would do that. Any help?

PS - Never used Photoshop as well. I've used Microsoft Visio before though.

Quark or Photoshop. If you don't have any of them and are really stuck - Publisher.

Depends on what you want your poster to look like. Professionally, InDesign is usually used for stuff like that, coupled with other Adobe programs like Photoshop and Illustrator.

As an amateur, you can go with Powerpoint. It's mostly vector graphics anyway (although again this depends on what your poster will be like), so they'll scale fine.

Publisher's actually pretty decent for the "non professional". Quite a lot of flexibility, and chances are you already have it; good enough for the one time project. If this is something you're going to do a lot of though, then yes you'll want something better. As Noroom mentioned, InDesign, along with Photoshop and Illustrator is a good call for this.

I'd go with Adobe InDesign as well. Non-pro apps like Plublisher on Windows or Pages on Mac can also do the job fairly well. They just lack more advanced tools and preferences.

Considering this is only for a project if you have publisher then use publisher. Indesign can be awfully expensive if you get it legally.

If you dont have publisher then try http://www.scribus.net its opensource and free.
