a2 size poster creation

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to design and create an A2 size poster and my physical memory is off the charts is there a way of creating the design small and resizing the canvas when I'm finished or is it just impossible to create a poster this size on my laptop?


any help would be greatly appreciated,

That depends on the resolution you're printing at.

If you just want 96 dpi (default), you should be alright.

A2 paper size: 23.4 x 16.5 in


Print Resolution: 300 DPI


Size in Pixels:  23.4 x 300 = 7020

                    16.5 x 300 = 4950
