How to Create an Infographic in Under an Hour [+10 Free Templates]

How to Create an Infographic in Under an Hour [+10 Free Templates] | The Best of Art & Imagination | Scoop.it

Wouldn't it be great if creating infographics was just as simple as writing regular ole text-based blog posts? Unfortunately, the reality is that making visual content like this usually takes a lot more time, effort, and let's face it -- skill -- than the written word. 

 

Usually.But considering the popularity and effectiveness of visual content in marketing today, you can't just afford to throw in the towel. That's why we decided to take all the pain and suffering out of infographic creation. 

 

Seriously -- don't throw in the towel just yet. You, too, can create professional-looking, high-quality infographics ... quickly! And I'm going to prove it. First things first ...

lindabenn's curator insight, March 30, 6:22 PM

I love starting my day with a workout. It is priority for me and sets the tone for the rest of the day. Even the days where I dont have time to go to the gym, I will do my own exercise at home on my yoga mat. I love doing Ab's everyday. Summer is my favorite and being outdoors and getting some sunshine is the best. When I lived in Australia the beach and ocean was my workout- so energizing! Now in NoCal I love a variety of different classes at the gym, plus have a personal trainer and outdoors hiking and bike riding. I love to swim laps too though only a hot sunny day so I also absorb Vitamin D.
