Did you know that infographics are 30 to 40 times more likely to be viewed and shared vs. text? At least that’s the claim that Easel.ly makes on its homepage. The new site, a project in beta, makes it super easy to use drag-n-drop templates to create beautiful infographics for free.
I played with it for a few minutes to see what it could do. It’s super easy to use and pretty powerful. There are five templates to get you started. You can also start from scratch. The site provides icons in ten different categories and allows you to upload your own graphics if you want to use your own. To remove or delete an item, simply drag it off of the pasteboard.
You can export your infographic as PNG, PDF, JPG, or SVG files. If you want to save your infographic to work on later, you’ll have to create an account. Note that they support Firefox, Chrome, and Safari, but not Internet Explorer.
