Guide to Free Online Infographic Services

6 free online infographic creations sites apps

Several online infographic (and general graphics) creation services have popped up over the last couple of years. They usually offer free and paid plans so you can get a good feel for how they work and the templates and artwork available on each one without having to dig into your wallet.

It’s a good idea to find one of these free infographic creation sites that you like and stick with it. They all seem to work on grid systems for their layout and this doesn’t make them super easy to use, but once you get the hang of how a specific site operates, you’ll be able to complete your artwork fairly quickly.

You’ll also want to learn how to upload your own graphics so you can brand any infographic you create. I made this simple infographic using Canva. I took a template the site provided, changed the type, changed the graphic in each little box, uploaded by logo and downloaded the finished infographic.

The free infographic creation sites provide guides that pop up to show you how things are aligning. It’s the smaller tweaks that take time. It probably took about 30 minutes to create this and if I did this more often, it would go more quickly.

Below the infographic are live links to each site. Find one you like and start using it. Graphics will really boost your social media posts if you aren’t using them already. Have fun taking these sites on test drives.

Note: I did a screen capture and some markup to illustrate the guides on the graphic and some resolution was lost. The downloaded, unaltered infographic from Canva is quite sharp:
