Canon Europe has introduced a web version of PosterArtist, a free-of-charge poster creation application compatible with large-format imagePrograf printers and other Canon print devices.
“Now, with PosterArtist’s intuitive user interface, every Canon customer - from the professional graphics producer to the home user - can create impactful posters, flyers and banners, whatever their level of design expertise. And because the software can be accessed from any location, personal and business users have complete flexibility to customise their poster applications in line with today’s fluid ways of working,” explained Hiro Imamura, marketing and innovation vice president, digital printing and solutions at Canon Europe.
The new web version of PosterArtist guides the user through the stages of poster design and print. They can select ‘Poster’, ‘Flyer’, or ‘Banner’ from the application design menu or select a theme such as ‘Retail/Distribution’ or ‘Sale’. An ‘Auto Design’ option helps to create posters, flyers and banners from scratch.
Users can choose from an extensive range of designs and images thanks to PosterArtist’s access to millions of royalty-free photos provided by stock image libraries (Pexels, Pixabay and Unsplash), or alternatively, they can import their own image to use.
Compatible with a number of Canon devices, gold and silver texture effects can be used to enhance the design, thanks to newly developed image processing technology. Users of the Canon imagePrograf GP series can add fluorescent ink too.
