Ninety percent of my patrons who want a poster made will come with their poster on a PowerPoint file. The dimensions of a PowerPoint slide will only expand to 24 x 36 inches (there about) -- so to get a bigger poster what we have done is saved the slide as a .jpg and resized it in Photoshop.
 
QUESTION: What are some technical tips for reducing FONT AND IMAGE pixelization??

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
