How do I add images to an iPoster?

Add images to an iPoster in a couple of clicks using the Insert Image tool. You will find this tool on the toolbar of each content box as shown in the screenshots below.

IMPORTANT: Images must be in JPG, PNG or GIF format. When inserting images, remember that they will expand to their full size when tapped by visitors or by you during your presentation. So, make sure your images are as large as possible – up to 1920 x1080 pixels. And if available, use the original images for best quality. If they are not available, take screen shots of your images, but zoom in before you take them so that, again, they are as large as possible.

Treat diagrams, charts, tables, etc… the same way. Either export them from their source program as JPG or PNG, or take a screen shot. Make them as large as possible, and then import them into your content boxes. That way they will expand to make it easy for your visitors to view them.

Remember that an iPoster can contain so much more than an upload of a  PDF or PowerPoint, so try to take advantage of this by including:

  • Videos
  • Sound files
  • Links to dynamic external information (e.g. online data sets, visualizations, etc…)
  • As much content as you feel is necessary to present your research with the detail it deserves. There are no content limits.  As soon as you exceed the apparent physical space of a content box, it will scroll.

One last tip.

As you proceed, save your progress then check your work by clicking on the Preview button. You’ll get a close approximation of how your presentation will look on the HD screens, and can test all of the functionality: content boxes and images expand when clicked, videos play correctly, external links connect, etc…

Instructions for adding an image to an iPoster content box:

1. Either drag and drop your image into the upload box or click on the box to choose an image from your files. If you have previously uploaded images into your gallery click on the ‘Image Gallery’ tab to browse and select an existing image.

2. After dropping your image file or selecting the image directly from your files. Allow approx. 10 seconds and your image should be uploaded. The Image Info tab will be displayed. You can choose to add captions to your image or change the alignment using the options in this box. Click ‘Ok’.

3. The image is now inserted into the content box. You can double click on the image to return to the Image Info tab and change the alignment or add a caption.
