I wish to design a four-column poster, and I have an image that I would like to float across the middle two -- but not all four -- columns. The standard things I've been able to find involving figure* and/or multicols does not seem like it will work. Any advice? Thank you!

In a poster you don't really need page breaking/floating at all, just do it by hand: put the image in one column, hide its width with


so it will over-print the column to the right, then use \vspace*{something} to leave space in that column.
