Credit: Image by TapiF on Flickr. Some rights reserved Over the past year here at Journalism.co.uk we have reported on a number of new tools and platforms which have been launched or updated, which offer journalists different ways of telling stories visually. Our news:rewired events have also highlighted a number of those tools, most recently in a dedicated session on visual storytelling at news:rewired - digital stories, which was held last Thursday (6 December). Here is a list of just 14 tools that journalists might find useful. Some launched this year, while others have been around for some time now but continue to be used by news outlets today. Timelines 1. Users simply sign up to Timetoast and then they can create embeddable timelines. Each event added to the timeline can have an image and link added to it. 2. Another timeline building option is Dipity, which users also sign up to use, either directly through Dipity or via Facebook. Data visualisations 3. 4. 5. Multimedia packages 6. 7.
