If printing your poster, it's a good idea to do test print of your poster before getting it printed. Colors often appear brighter and more vibrant on a screen than when printed. All printers will have some variations on the color, but this will help make sure it isn't too far off from your needs.
Using images can be a great way to help communicate some of the content of your poster in another medium. If you don't already have a chart, graph, photo, or other image you would like to use you can find images for free (though you should still cite) from these resources. You can specify that you are looking for images that fall under a specific license.
Many design applications will also have images that you can utilize from their own image banks.
