Hi all

I'm not really sure where to post this. I just wanted to ask what software do you use, or would you recommend, for making a physics poster for an academic conference (physics)?

I'd go with PowerPoint + latex plug-in because I've used that a ton before, but maybe there are better ways to do it? I've heard people recommend InkScape and Adobe InDesign, but I have never used them. Would it be worth it learning to use that? Is it likely that will be helpful later (like, can I use that for presentations or something)?
I've also read people advicing against doing that in latex, saying it's too much effort for too little reward.

So, what software do you use to make your posters?

Thanks

Powerpoint. That, and PDF format were the only two formats that printing offices at the 2 US National Labs where I used to work accepted.

I make mine in pdflatex, using \documentclass{beamer} and \usepackage{beamerposter}. They come out great.
