Here are the fastest steps to make a poster with GIMP:
- Open GIMP and create a new document by clicking on „File“ > „New“. Set the width and height to the desired poster size and click „OK“.
- Choose a background color or image by selecting the „Bucket Fill“ tool from the toolbar and clicking on the canvas to fill it with color, or importing an image by clicking on „File“ > „Open“.
- Add text to your poster by selecting the „Text“ tool from the toolbar and clicking on the canvas to create a text box. Type your text and customize the font, size, and color from the options in the „Text“ dialog box.
- Add images or graphics by importing them from files or by using the drawing tools such as the „Rectangle Select“ tool, „Ellipse Select“ tool, or „Free Select“ tool to create shapes and then filling them with colors or patterns.
- Arrange all the elements of your poster by selecting the „Move“ tool from the toolbar and dragging them around the canvas to the desired positions.
- Once you are satisfied with your poster, save it by clicking on „File“ > „Export As“ and choosing a file format such as JPEG or PNG.
- Print your poster or share it online to showcase your design!
