Top Tools: PiktoChart

PiktoChart is a Cloud-base presentation creation and management tool for making infographics. It allows users without graphic design experience to easily create infographics and other visuals using themed templates

I love a good infographic and Piktochart is easy to use and can produce some great looking visual content.

For those of you that don’t know an infographic is they are, Infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data, or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly. They can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system’s ability to see patterns and trends.  If you spend any time online, you have no doubt seen quite a few of these as they are a great way to support a companies message on a webpage or support the story-telling of data in any blog post or download.

Piktochart is easy to use, and it provides simple graphics tools which offer unlimited freedom to build or edit infographics. There are plenty of themed templates that allows you to create great looking infographics. There are interactive maps, categorized icons, and features to add interactive videos, charts, maps, and hyperlinks. 

You can easily create infographics for different projects including social media, office, classroom, or your website.  All completed projects can be saved to the cloud for future reference and editing. You can export the projects in different formats including PDF, PNG, and JPEG.

There are 3 pricing plans for PiktoChart and you can choose to pay annually or for a slightly higher cost monthly. The free account gives you 5 active visuals 40mb uploads but you can only export in standard quality and create using only the predefined colour schemes. So this is useful for getting to grips with the tool, but going forward you will need to upgrade for it to be truly useful. However the Pro account is quite reasonable at $29 a month.
