This is a great background to use for single subject football posters. Using the Erase Background tool in the Poster Maker, you can remove the background from behind the subject and put them in the center of this poster. This layout works great if you’ve got action shots from a recent football match lying around.

You can also try adding other photos of the player or team around the main photo. Use the Fading Edges effect in the Poster Maker to have photos blend in with the background. It looks great on a printed poster!

Also be sure to try a Football specific poster background, they’ll give your poster a unique look. Be sure to give your text an outline and maybe a dropshadow as well to increase readability. Also try rotating the text and placing it vertically along the edge of a poster; that’s a good place to put a school/team name or a slogan.

If you have a team album somewhere on Facebook, you can also try the InstaCollage Maker. It’ll automatically make a collage out of all your Football photos.
