- First you are going to choose the Image that you want to use for your movie poster.
- Then you will open InDesign and set up a New InDesign Document for Print with the at Width 27 inches and height at 40 inches, which is the standard size of a movie poster.
Select the Type Tool (T), dragging to create a long text frame. Rest this between the margins at the top of the poster. Type your title for the movie poster here.
You can adjust Tracking directly from the Character Formatting Controls panel when you have the Type Tool (T) selected.
Continue to build up text on the poster – the names of the cast, the date of release, director’s name etc. Remember to contrast the colour of the text against the background. Use dark swatches against the lighter parts of the image.
Next you can adjust the boldness and the font at your discretion.
Now you finally have your movie poser.
