DIY Infographics: three free tools

AMA's Amy Firth looks at three of the most popular free infographic tools and their pros and cons.

Infographics can be a great way to get complicated information across quickly and visually. If you’ve been on our Infographics That Wow online training, you’ll know what to include in an infographic and how to best plan and structure that information. So you’re all set to create your masterpiece…  but what tool do you use to do that?
If you’ve got some design experience, then you can dive right in to tried and trusted Adobe platforms like Creative Cloud – but if you’re not a specialist, or don’t have access to a paid platform there’s some free packages out there you might want to consider.
Most of these packages are somewhat limited in the free functionality which they offer, with the option to upgrade for more advanced features, but you can still produce respectable infographics with relative ease. A basic grasp of design principles is always helpful, but if you’ve already been on our infographics training you’ll have enough to get you going.
Head over here, where we take a quick look at three of the most popular free infographic tools and their pros and cons below, based on our own experience of using them.
