Uploading posters to a blog

There are several reasons you may want to upload posters to a blog, such as to make posters presented at a conference publicly available, to publicize a research project, or to display posters from a class. If you are teaching a class that includes a poster assignment, it would be nice to upload class posters so that students can see what their classmates have done and also to promote their work.

But what file format should you use?  And how will they appear on the blog once you upload them?

Uploading posters: file types

You probably used either PowerPoint or InDesign to create your poster. The file formats you are most likely to consider for uploading to a blog are jpeg, pdf, and ppt (PowerPoint).

.pdf format is usually the best option. You can set up a link to a pdf file in a blog post so it will open the pdf when the user clicks on the link.  To do it this way you need to first export/save your original Powerpoint or InDesign file in pdf format, then upload the exported pdf file to the blog.
