Piktochart is simply a cloud-based design tool with drag and drop feature to help you create infographics, presentations, posters and reports. Cloud-based tool means that you don’t have to download or install any kind of software, just go to its website, create an account (which is 100% FREE) and that’s it. You now can freely create as many infographics as you want.
Pros and Cons
Piktochart is convenient and easy to use especially if you are working with steps by steps, how to guide or any simple infographics. If you’re using Lite/Pro account, you can pick one pre-made template among a wide variety of choices and start customize on your own. It’s that simple.
One thing that I don’t like about Piktochart is that it’s less flexible if you want to create long form infographics and it really depends on your creativity to create something unique and fresh. As you know, with pre-made templates you may fall into the trap of “me too” infographics which do no good for your business.
