An Infographic in today’s world means a large image file that has been created in order to disseminate information. They are highly graphical because they are supposed to be easy on the eyes and suitable for a quick reference. Some of them are overly wordy, but they defeat the object of having an online Infographic. Here are a few tools that are going to help you create a visually appealing Infographic whilst also allowing you to create something that has condensed and useful data on it.
1 – Canva
This is a website that allows you to create Infographics as well as posters, flyers and slide too. Just like the one above, you are able to use the drag-and-drop system it offers to build your own Infographic. You can drag and drop things onto a template and move them around. They also have a clip art section with images you can use, and you can add your own text, images, and graphics to it if you wish. You can download your Infographic as a PNG file or a PDF.
2 – zInfogr.am
With this tool you, can create Infographics online and you can create Infographic posters. It allows you to create various charts such as pie, matrix, line and bar, and you can edit each one on the spreadsheet function so that it generates your chart for you. You can also make it so that your numbers appear when you hover the mouse pointer over it. You can add maps and videos as well as text and images. They also make it easy to embed your creations into your blog or website.
3 – Easel.ly
This is another one of the more popular Infographic creators. You drag and drop design elements onto your page in the same way you do with a content management system for a website. You can use one of the templates that you find with the tool, or you can start from scratch and build it up using the drag-and-drop functions. You may upload your own graphics and then convert your Infographic into a search engine friendly format and export it from the website.
4 – Piktochart
This is a fairly popular Infographic creator. It only has seven templates but they are all pretty good and you can customize them to a rather pleasing degree. You can add in charts, different colors, icons, and fonts. If you feel like you need more space on your template then you can add more fields to make it bigger. It is easy to use and many people have created rather good Infographics with it.
5 – EWC Presenter
This is the least popular tool on this article, but that is because it is the newest Infographic creator on this article. It is built to help people create banner adverts, banner graphics, slideshows and Infographics. This tool allows you to animate certain objects within your Infographic so that it moves around as it sits on your website or your blog. You may also insert audio files too.
A quick guide to using Infographic creators
Your best bet is to use one of the themes that the tools provide. This leaves you with the risk that your Infographic is going on look like that of another person, but there is little chance that the other person is going to use your data, your customizations and your graphics too. Even if your data was the same, you are still going to find that you can customize your Infographic to such an extent that it will be hard to have yours look similar to anybody else’s.
If you do not use a theme/template then your Infographic will look like something you cooked up on MS paint. You should also experiment and save several versions of your Infographic. This helps you revert back to something more original when you make a mess of your first efforts.
Part of the process is skill, another is planning and another is dumb luck. There are many times when all or part of your Infographic is going to look fantastic and it happened by accident. The more you practice with a little trial and error than the more chance you have of creating a truly great Infographic.
Do not add too much raw data or text. Adding too much text will instantly make your Infographic less desirable. People do not want to look at Infographics for the writing, they are there to get the gist of what is being said without too much reading at all; this also means you should put raw data into charts.
If you need help in creating an Infographic there are always professionals you will do it.
