Piktochart tips

Adding your own Images

  • While Piktochart has a massive collection of images you can browse and use in your infographic, if you want to use an image from your computer, click upload on the left hand menu to upload images from a folder on your computer. Once uploaded, your image will live in the uploads library in your account.

Resizing Images

  • It can sometimes be hard to resize an image without it stretching too tall or too wide. In order to maintain the proportions of your image, hold down the SHIFT key while clicking and dragging to resize your image.

Charts and Maps

  • Visual data can be more powerful than words! Remember that you can create charts or maps through Piktochart. See this link for a great article on how to optimize your charts!

Downloading and Saving your Infographic

  • You can make your infographic accessible through the web by clicking on the Share button at the top right of the page. If you want to take it a step further and download your infographic and save it for printing, see this link for a quick tutorial on how to do that.
