20+ Tools to Create Your Own Infographics

A picture is worth a thousand words – based on this, infographics would carry hundreds of thousands of words, yet if you let a reader choose between a full-length 1000-word article and an infographic that needs a few scroll-downs, they’d probably prefer absorbing information straight from the infographic. What’s not to like? Colored charts and illustrations deliver connections better than tables and figures and as users spend time looking back and forth the full infographic, they stay on the site longer. Plus, readers who like what they see are more likely to share visual guides more than articles. While not everyone can make infographics from scratch, there are tools available on the Web that will help you create your very own infographics. In this article, we’re listing more than 20 such options to help you get your messages across to your readers, visually. Read Also: The Infographic Revolution: Where Do We Go From Here?

Truth be known, most of these visualizations are just as ugly as a Power Point presentation theme from 1994, but at least people are trying, we suppose.

Yesterday, AGBeat introduced you to Piktochart, an infographic app for busy professionals that come with pre-loaded themes of infographics that are far superior to most peoples’ PPT skills. But sometimes, you may be looking for a fast, simple way to add a single chart to your blog to illustrate a point.
