I’m sorry I’ve been MIA again. My excuse was that I went to TED Global in Edinburgh and then Dublin. In fact I’m still in Dublin. But I ran across a tool that was so cool I had to get my act together to share:
Easel.ly – http://www.easel.ly/
It allows you to build infographics fairly easily. I built one today: https://s3.amazonaws.com/easel.ly/all_easels/15596/
There are a few themes you can use. You can add or change objects, text, background based on your needs. Like any new tool, it’s a little poky as you figure out the basics. One tip, the key with this tool is click and drag. I did a lot of useless double clicking.
My goal this year had been to learn how to better present information graphically. I had just about given up – but with Easel.ly I feel like I may be back on track! (Speaking of back on track I will try to post more often.)
