Infographics have become a popular way to share data in an eye-catching manner. While there are many software programs that help users create graphs and basic charts there are very few options that allow those without access to or knowledge of expensive graphic design software to create infographs. Two free websites help users design their own infographs: Piktochart and Infogr.am.
- Piktochart users create infographs using easy data visualization tools and images from a large graphics library. Users also have the ability to upload 10 personal images per infograph. A free account gives users a choice of 6 templates and lets them create a final image file to share in presentations, on websites, or through a URL.
- Infogr.am users have fewer options to customize their infographics using this free tool. Text editing is easier than in Piktochart. Users can share their graphic with an embed code or on Facebook or Twitter.
