We needed a handout for Slideshare for a roundtable on regional conferences that the president of the Philadelphia Metro Chapter and I are giving at the STC Annual Conference during Leadership Day. Being technical communicators, we were getting bogged down in all of the little things, when really what works best when publishing like this is the big picture. So I thought an infographic would be a good option….if only I could figure out how to make one! I had tried infogr.am in the past, but I couldn’t make it work for me. So I searched the web for infographic and the piktochart website came up. So much easier to use and I think it came out pretty good considering I am not a graphic artist and I needed something quick.
I used one of their free templates, but ended up paying for the service in order to get it uploaded to Slideshare and to get a PDF of it (instead of a .jpg or .png). I have some other ideas while I am in infographic mode, so I am going to try to make the best of it. 🙂
