Canon U.S.A. has introduced PosterArtist 2009, an easy-to-use poster-creation application for its Canon imageProGraf series of large format printers. The new PosterArtist 2009 provides the tools necessary to “create design-savvy posters without the need for a graphic-design specialist,” Canon says. New features include:

• Improved Auto Design: Assists in creating personalized posters by creating numerous template design options based on user inputs including image selection, color themes, text and more.

• Design Assistant: Enables users to specify any area of the poster and apply the “Auto Design” feature to that area to provide new design ideas.

• Quick Exchange: Allows users to easily interchange design elements by simply dragging one of the elements to the location of the other; Quick Exchange automatically swaps their positions.

• WYSIWYG text editing: Eliminates the need for constant text altering by letting users see text at the correct size and font as they type.

PosterArtist also includes more than 200 pre-designed templates, more than 1500 royalty free images, clipart, backgrounds and more.

MSRP: $799. Canon will bundle PosterArtist Lite 2009 with its new imageProGraf iPF755/750 and iPF655/650 models.
