Also a trick I learned from my graphics professor it makes it easier to work with, and the file size is smaller and easier/faster to wrok with and print out. Create or in your case reduce the size of your image (I am assuming it is a project board) in photoshop and bump up the dpi. Usually you want to work in a multiple of 72 (144 or 288 depending on size and quality needed). After that you import the file into pagemaker as a .tiff, add your type onto the image ( in photoshop you just create the board without type) and then print. In the print options you multiply the size of your image 200%, 300% etc depending on how much you reduced the board size in photoshop and how big you want your board. If you have time try it out with a spare copy of your poster board.

You get a great quality, and sharp text. Easier and faster printing process, and your computer lag time is reduced significantly. Hope this helps.
