Consider a Movie Poster Theme

Before getting started to make a movie poster, you need to prepare some movie pictures and some related words. We always prepare these materials according to the theme of the movie. If the poster is made for a love story movie, we need some moved sayings. If it is made for a comedy movie, we’d better prepare some funny sentence. If it is made for a horror movie, some scary texts are better to express it. Thinking about the specific type of movie, prepare the specific words and pictures related.

Arrange the Poster Contents

Words and pictures are of importance in a poster. That does not mean a poster should be filled with all the words and pictures. Leaving proper blank space is vitally important as well. Actually, some visual appealing photos and a few words of strong theme will definitely be much meaningful to arouse people’s interests.

Just add the movie related photos to the movie poster template. You can add photos from the left photo list or simply by dragging and dropping it onto the poster editing areas. Then, fine tune the photo color or effect with the color adjustment tools and various built in photo effects, like Vintage, B&W, Marcato, Antique, Pop, etc. Apply one that is suitable for the poster. If this is not enough, refine your movie photo using the features of Saturation, Hue, Exposure, Contrast and Brightness. Before deciding the final effect, you have to try and error in many mix effects until the result will satisfy you.
