After using it to promote some content for the Monetary Library, we used most of the features offered so we could share them with EmergingEdTech readers.

Let’s examine some of the useful features of Visme.
Creating Infographics With Visme
There are many infographic templates that you can choose from. Decide which one will be useful and pick it. The main theme section will be in the middle of the screen with an editing window.
You have various objects that are already set up in the chosen infographic. Clicking on a sub-navigation menu will give you access to editing elements.
When you learn how to design infographics, you quickly realize the fact that the process is complicated. Visme is great from this point of view because you have access to simple editing tools. Everything is pretty straightforward with extra floating menus that appear, highlighting the modifications that can be done.
Charts And Images
The graphs and charts feature is particularly useful as you can use one of the various widgets included, making the creation of illustrated data very fast and easy. Source data can easily be changed and you can even include audio or video files, which would be added through an Insert From URL feature.
Another great thing about Visme is that it makes it easy to pull images from Flickr's Creative Commons. You can also add your own images. Various image modification features are included in Visme and using them is easy.
Various options are available as you want to publish. The created files can be downloaded as HTML, PDF and JPG. Publishing can be done on the Slideshare account or you can embed your infographic on a blog/site. Social sharing buttons are also available.
Make sure that you use the preview function before you publish. Sometimes you end up adding items that you do not want and that you would not notice without this feature. The preview and publish menu is easy to understand and use.
When creating banners, there is a special timeline feature that can help you create banners that are patly or totally animated. There is also an advanced feature that gives you access to more control features, similar to Flash and After Effects.
We found the infographics section to be the most powerful part of Visme, but all the tools are excellent (particularly for those who don't already have a lot of design knowledge or experience). Teachers and students are sure to find it a powerful aid for creating content for the classroom.
