There is an inverse relationship between print size and resolution (if you increase the print size the resolution decreases and vice-versa).
To get good results when inserting an image into a research poster, the image should be printed at a resolution of at least 200 pixels per inch (ppi) or 300dpi.
Images that look good online may not be high enough resolution to look good in print at the size you want them to be.

In general, use colours sparingly; use a maximum of 2 or 3.
Use contrasting colours to draw attention to specific text or areas of your poster.
