Poster creation quick tip

So I have been struggling with creating posters for a conference I am attending next week. The beamer is definitely the way to go but creating a poster in beamer is painful. So here is a work-around.

Create the slides in beamer.  If you have an A0 poster then roughly 16 slides or less
Create a pdf of the slides
Convert pdf to high resolution jpeg images
 gs -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=jpeg -r2100 -sOutputFile='page-d.jpg' Flyer.pdf

Import these images in Open Office and create a gigantic poster in Open Office.
