I thought using infographics would be a great way for me to add something different to my blog, but I didn't know how to get started. I saw a post about using PowerPoint and gave it a shot. It took less than 30 minutes.

How I Created Easy Infographics Using MS PowerPoint

  1. 1. By Kimberly Gauthier Creating Infographics with MS PowerPoint
  2. 2. Start with a new slide and change slide orientation to Portrait
  3. 3. Change the size of the slide to better fit in a blog post – I use 6” wide, 11 or 12 “ height
  4. 4. Change the size of the slide to better fit in a blog post – I use 6” wide, 11 or 12 “ height
  5. 5. Start creating your infographic – I use the Drawing section and worry about design later
  6. 6. The shapes in Design accept text, I just double click and start typing, and add my own images
  7. 7. Now have fun choosing a cool Design – just scroll through each one until one works for you
  8. 8. When you find your Design, save as a PDF – choose Minimum Size for online publishing
  9. 9. When the PDF saves, it’ll open in a new window; change view to what you see below
  10. 10. And then…  Change the size so that you can see the entire infographic on one page and then Print Screen  Open MS Paint and paste the screen print there  Crop the image to the infographic and rotate view to portrait  Save as your new image and upload to your site.
  11. 11. I created three infographics this weekend…each took less than 30 minutes
  12. 12. Happy Designing!!!
