Pros: I love this tool. Piktochart is very intuitive and easy to use. It is especially useful to creating infographics or email banners. There is a decent level of functionality in terms of styling, colour, shapes, and transparency, with an excellent store of free images and graphics to use. You can also upload your own imagery as needed. Once you have your graphic elements chosen, it is very easy to adjust and manipulate them to create the effects you want. Our team uses this tool in place of a graphic designer for smaller projects.

Cons: There are some limitations in terms of the space of your "canvas" and some font and shape restrictions. It's certainly not in the same category as a design tool like Photoshop but for the price it's a good option for any marketing team. We tend to use Piktochart for very specific design needs and rely on the graphics department for more complex work.

Overall: The product is very easy to use. It has a decent catalog of free graphics to pull from which allows users to create visually engaging infographics, web ads, and banners. You can share or download what you've made with the click of a button. This tool is ideal for teams or departments needing basic design support without a graphic designer.

Pros: First of all, piktochart most relevant advantages imply simplicity, functionality and convenience. As an English teacher, I always need to provide students with engaging explanatory materials, capable of delivering complex messages in the most simplistic and understandable way. With piktochart you are able to do this and more, at a very convenient price. The layouts ae attractive and engaging. My students love appreciating my piktochart explanations, basically made for explaining grammar or functions within the language.

Cons: Truth be told, the amount of layouts and fonts might be a little limited to say at least. However, for its final price, this issues do not interfere with its other considerable perks and pluses.

Overall: Simplicity, cool features, highly convenient price. Piktochart offers users the chance of doing interesting presentations in technically no considerable amount of time invested.

Very good application to perform infographics and presentations in a very short period of time.

Pros:

The best quality that this application has is the speed and simplicity of the application in letting you design any type of art you need at the moment. Having an easy access to the application through an email, being registered in the web page

Cons: I'd like if the space for Uploading images for a free user can be more than 40 Mb. It seems very less when you want to do a long one and do multiple edits. I wish they had a few more template options to pick from. I am not sure if there is a community template area I have not checked out, but that might be cool too. I'm sure it is necessary to advertise, but my office does not budget to pay for a subscription. We use the free version that includes a watermark/boilerplate for Piktochart on everything we create.

Pros: This software is among the easiest to use to create basic designs for posters, flyers and informational sheets.

Cons: I think the designs, icons and templates could be updated and enhanced. There should be a template for every type of infographic.

Overall: My company mainly uses Piktochart to complete informational graphics (infographics) to be used on our website.

Pros: Seriously the best infographic creator out there. Piktochart got me through college! So easy to create really professional looking infographics - much better than trying to create one on Photoshop, in my opinion. The templates make it so easy to get a head start on a project and the text frames add such a splash of creativity. Love Piktochart!

Cons: No cons yet! Such a great, easy to use software. Also... it's web based so what's not to love?! You can access it anywhere.

Pros: I like that Piktochart is an infographic-creating software. It gives the students something to do that is not a PowerPoint or Google Slide or Prezi presentation. It allows students to use their creativity.

Cons: What I dislike about this product is that if you are not using it after so long, they disconnect your account. I like Piktochart, but I do not use it as often as I do other products. It would be nice to be able to keep my account open to be able to view previous Piktocharts that I've used for other classes without recreating my account.

It is perfect for making infographics and other image compositions quickly, easily and free.

Pros: It is free for most functions although it has space limitations to upload our own images.

its editor is very good since it provides guide lines that allow to align and adjust the elements.

has more options for editing the elements than other similar tools such as canva.

It has a variety of graphics that can be used as: bar, pie, venn diagram, among others, in which you can import data from csv or xlsx files or use a Google Spreadsheet Link to manage dynamic data.

It offers a variety of maps to place in the design and the possibility of adding data and legends.

It allows you to include video files from YouTube and Vimeo.

Once a presentation is published you can add transitions, I can also choose if only I can see the presentation or if I want to share it through social networks.

allows download in png format to an acceptable quality in the free version.

Cons: you can not work collaboratively unless you hire the pro team plan

Elements can not be animated when presentations are made.

Place a watermark that you can only remove by contracting the pro plan or pro team plan.

Pros: It takes 0 design or dev experience to be able to jump into the tool and whip up a Grade A infographic is an hour or two. In a previous role, we were so efficient with it, we started building custom infographic plans for our customers.

Cons: You really need to pay to taste the value. The free trial is very limited and doesn't paint the full picture of why every team needs this tool.

This software is amazing for creating quick and beautiful infographics!

Pros: I love that they have templates and you can create your own. I use Photoshop often, but Piktochart allows me to create beautiful infographics in such little time.

Cons: There's really nothing I don't like about this software. It's super easy to use. You can make effective infographics even if you don't know what you're doing.

Overall: Quick, effective, and beautiful infographics!

If you're creative, Piktochart free is great, if you need more guidance, level up

Pros: The free version has a lot of things going for itYou only need to be a little creative and you can turn one of the free templates into anything you want, or start from scratch. I like the flexibility and that there are lots of icons and shapes available

Cons: If you're not creative, you might want to level up to have access to over 600 templates. They have templates for everything and honestly it makes it so much easier and quicker to just choose one, and fill in the info you need.

Overall: Super easy to make infographics, no limit on shapes or icons i can use.

Pros: I love the access to the templates and icon library. The text frames are really cool as well to find new ways to make text visually attractive and include facts and figures.

Cons: Not being able to upload custom fonts is big for us. Also, when you share a piktochart, the other person can't download it, they can only view it. This means we have to download a copy each time and upload it somewhere for them to be able to mark-up during review processes. I've found however that the design line-up is inconsistent- meaning when you're trying to align something the auto-alignment is a little wonky. Also, if you zoom in to say 300% something looks aligned, but when you zoom out to 100% there's space. I've found this inconsistency to bleed over to the pdfs as well.

I use Piktochart to create eye catching Infographic syllabi for my English courses.

Pros: I like the variety of templates as well as the ability to create my own templates for my documents. There is a wide variety of font choices, which I also appreciate. I can import my own graphics as well.

Cons: I find it difficult to align things sometimes and because I use the free version it downloads with the watermark. I don't think that is a software issue so much as a user issue, but something to be aware of.

Pros: Easy to create and edit compelling infographics using Piktochart templates as inspiration. I like how each template is divided into blocks for easier editing of each graphic segment. I use Piktochart regularly to draft infographics and other designs for clients.

Cons: Somewhat limited icon library--would like to see more variety in icons and icon styles.

Overall: Efficient creation of compelling infographics for clients.

Pros: There is almost NO learning curve for making really sharp infographics and PDFs. The stock images are really helpful, as are the templates.

Cons: I can't see how to change the font inside the chart tool for the percent marker on the line graph. It prints a bit blurry and I don't get how to bold it.

Overall: This has helped our little nonprofit look as big as the big dogs.

Pros: The layout is very simple to work with. As a first-time infographic creator, I've explored a variety of websites trying to find the simplest ones. This lands in the top 3.

I was able to craft a infograph from a template in less than 30min, and it even allowed for me to make changes that suited my needs.

Cons: Huge downside: templates are very limited in free versions. They provide a "lite" version, which is half the cost of the more useful paid option. This version doesn't allow you as much freedom though, so it's hard to justify the use of more templates without the extra functionality.

This doesn't take away from the platform though - the quality is there, just comes at a cost!

Overall: Quick infographics that actually look good.

Great tool for creating infographics and designs online; a complementary tool to Canva.

Pros: If you liked Canva and didn't find Tailor Brands an adequate enough solution, then you're in for a treat: wonderful infographics with very easy to align layout, great free design options and a very easy-to-use interface.

Couple it with Canva, and you got 95% of all graphics needs covered without paying a dime.

Cons: There are missing icons IMHO; I couldn't find the "EU" flag or "Europe" on the map (on its own) for an infographic, which forced me to import these images from the internet, but other than that - this is a great solution for most of your needs.

Overall: Great option as a complementary tool for Canva; answers 95% of your needs with ease.

I would gladly recommend it to anyone!

the best software to make infographics and brochures that I have tried without paying anything.

It is very easy to use, you learn in a very short time to use the functions of the program.

It is free for most of the things that one needs to do.

allows to easily make infographics, presentations, posters, flyers and reports.

Cons: It is a bit slow to load the editor and update the changes.

To use the animated icons and download the presentation, infographic or printable you must update to the "pro" payment plan.

Overall: It allowed me to create infographics and brochures for the tasks assigned to me in the university.

Pros: What I liked most about this software called piktochart was that it did not feel overcrowded. I felt overcrowded using other infographic makers.

Cons: What I did not like very much about piktochart software was how much you needed to do to make your infographic easier to make. You had to change a lot of settings to make it easier for yourself and that felt like a hassle.
