Choose an infographic template

How to create an infographic

Hover over Design on the PicMonkey homepage and click Templates. Now click the “Infographic” tag from the “Popular tags” section, or type “Infographic” into the search bar. Scroll through the options until you find a template you wanna customize.

Customize your infographic template

When you find your template match, click Customize to open it in the Editor. All of our templates are fully change-up-able, so you can swap out the colors, change the words and fonts, add or remove images and graphics (a.k.a. graphics)—whatever you wanna do.

Remember that readability is key when it comes to creating infographics. Once you’ve added your info to your chosen template, try to take an objective look at it. Is there too much text, and/or do your font choices make it difficult to read? Also, remember that modern humans LOVE to consume media on mobile devices, so if your infographic is only readable on a big monitor, you should probably make some adjustments to your design. Try rewording and cutting down the amount of text on your infographic, and experiment with different fonts. Simple sans serif fonts are generally considered the easiest to read on screens.

To access, reorder, and remove elements of your infographic design, use the Layers palette. You can get to it with the icon of two stacked squares in the bottom toolbar, or by right-clicking and then selecting the Show layers palette option. For an in-depth look at how to customize our templates, check out our video tutorial.

Save and share your infographic

When your infographic design is complete, save it to Hub to make it reeditable. (In case you catch a typo, decide on a different color scheme, or want to make other changes later.) Images saved to Hub can also be accessed with the PicMonkey mobile app, so you can post ’em to social media with lightening-fast speed. To save an image to Hub, click Save in the top toolbar. And to save your image to your computer, OneDrive, or Dropbox, click Export in the top toolbar.


The possibilities are endless when you get a PicMonkey membership.
