To make the most of your posters, once you have downloaded them, you can either:
A. Print them and then write your club/county details once printed or
B. Edit the pictures before printing. To do so, if using a windows computer, right click the downloaded file, select "open with" and "paint". This will open the file as a paint document that you can edit. From the toolbar at the top, select the text button (it looks like a capital A). This will allow you to select any space on your document and type in words. We suggest using size 48 for text and Calibri for the font. 
Please note, you can edit the box of text until you click off it, at which point you will loose the ability to edit that text. If you do accidentally click off the text box and it was not finished, click "Ctrl+Z" and it will undo your previous action.
