How can I make an Infographic in Five Steps?

over 3 years ago

With Piktochart's comprehensive interface, tools and features, you'll be an infographic-making genius in no time. When you log into Piktochart, you will first land on the Pikto Templates page.

Step 1: Pick a template

There are around 650 templates to choose from. We have made the selection process as easy as possible for you:

You can scroll through the hundreds of templates according to their respective formats - Infographic, Report, Banner and Presentation.

If you know the name of the theme you are looking for, you can use the search bar.

You can also filter through themes of similar topics to look for more template options that relate with what you were looking for!

Step 2: Preview or Create

You can first “preview” the template to make sure of your choice, and if so, click “create” to load the selected template. Once you arrive at the editor, you can make edits to texts by double clicking on the text box. You can make use of our new tool called Textframe to make stand-out text and titles with ready-to-use graphics!

Step 3: Insert graphics

Just click or drag-and-drop the graphics you need from the menu to your canvas. There are thousands of icons and images available in our libraries! Use the search tool or browse through them by categories to make things easier. You can also customize how your graphics look by changing the colors, resizing and rotating them. Our recent innovation called Photoframe allows you to drag and drop your photos into readily-made designs that instantly mask and pair your photos with text - so don’t forget to make use of it!.

Step 4: Visualize your data

Use the tools available in the left sidebar to visualize your data. There are tons of options to create charts and maps that can be customized to beautify your data. A popup will appear from which you can choose the best chart style for your data, coupled with a spreadsheet to input your data.

Step 5: Share your infographic

You can download your work as image, publish to the web, share by email, or share your infographic directly to social media. View your infographic on the output page by following the provided URL when you publish to the web for public view.

And you're done! How easy was it? GET STARTED!
