Vertical infographics are an ideal format for communicating effectively and efficiently and allow us to display the relevant information in a visually appealing way.

You can use vertical infographics as a support to display data, lists, or complex content in a simple, visual way.

The vertical format works better when viewing content on mobile devices, so your creation will reach a wider audience.

Creating a vertical infographic in Genially is easy. First you choose a template and then you edit its resources and add the info and data you want to each element.

We’ll explain the process step by step:

Choose a template

Explore the different templates you can use as a base to create a vertical infographic.

 To find them:

  1. Go to your main Panel and click on Create genially.

  2. Select the Infographics category.

  3. From the menu on the left, under the Infographics category, select vertical infographic.

  4. Choose the one you like best.

For this tutorial we’ve chosen this template.

TIP: Many of our templates have a selection of predefined color palettes, with which you can see different versions of the template. Click on the color palette and choose the one that best suits your design or your corporate colors. Don’t worry if later you change your mind and want to choose new colors, you can see how to do it in this tutorial.

Edit the template’s resources

Once you’ve got the template open in the Editor, you can start personalizing it and editing its components.

1. Text

You can use and edit the text boxes that are included in the templates, and you can also add more or move or delete them as you see fit.

Check out this tutorial to learn how to personalize text boxes.

2. Graphic resources

Explore the Resources section to see other types of available elements to insert in your creation: icons, shapes, graphs, lines and arrows, illustrations, scenes, maps, silhouettes.

You can also replace an existing resource. To do this, select the resource and click on Replace. You can choose the new resource from:

  • Your computer

  • A URL

  • Resources/image

  • Google Drive

  • Dropbox

3. Interactive elements

Every template has existing interactive elements, but you can modify them so that they represent the topic of your vertical infographic. You can also:

  • Replace: if you want to use another type of interactive element. Click on it and then on the Replace button that appears above it, on the right.

  • Add new interactive elements: you can explore the Interactive elements section to see other types of available elements: Buttons, Buttons with text, Social media, Numbers and letters, and Invisible areas. Click on the element you want to use and place it where you want it on your vertical infographic. You can also use any other resource of your choice. 

  • Delete: if there’s an element on the canvas that you don’t need, select it and press the Delete button on your keyboard, or the Delete button in the top toolbar of your Editor.

4. Apply interactivity

Now that you’ve chosen the interactive elements you’d like to use, all you need to do is apply the interactivity. You can add all kinds of content for it to display when your audience interacts with the elements: images, texts, videos, audios, GIFs, etc.

You can add audio to an element or resource so that it plays when you click on it. You can also make it so that some images and resources can be expanded to full-screen size when viewing your genially.

You can take your audience to another page of your creation or an external website. Discover the types of interactivity that exist and how to use them.

And remember: to show that an element is interactive and pique your audience’s curiosity, we encourage you to add animation effects to your elements.

Share your creation

First, publish your creation and then share the link with your audience so that everyone can enjoy your genially.

You can also insert your creation in a website or blog
