Your best work done in less time with the newly-refreshed Piktochart Visual editor
As part of our goal to build the future of information design, we’re finally rolling out the completely-redesigned Piktochart Visual editor this week.
After 18 months of thoughtful planning and getting valuable feedback, Piktochart users can now be more efficient with an editor that’s so easy to navigate.
Everything you need to create, design, and share visuals are accessible with just a single click.
Over the last few years, we often get feedback about how some of the features in our editor are less accessible.
Now, we’ve reorganized everything you need to do your best work – from charts to color combinations to illustrations. They are now more visible to you, quickly accessible, and simple to use.
No more endless clicking to find what you’re looking for! Get your visuals done faster without compromising quality.
Here are the most important improvements you should try with the newly refreshed editor:
1. Multiple possibilities with the new and powerful left sidebar
The left sidebar houses all the tools you need to help you design with ease and get as little stress as possible. Perfect when you have multiple deadlines to chase, and your hands are all tied up.
Graphs, charts, photos, icons, color schemes, text frames, you name it. The left sidebar has got your back!
2. Create beautiful, original visuals with the addition of 3.5 million icons by IconScout
Whether you’re planning to make a class presentation or create a progress report for your next all-hands meeting, skip the generic-looking icons and be more original with millions of icons from IconScout that you can access right away.
As a result, your icons get a more consistent and uniform look. This is an advantage especially if you’re aiming to build a solid reputation for your brand or business as consistency in design fosters and establishes trust.
The new IconScout library is available to Pro accounts. Free accounts can still enjoy Piktochart’s icons library and get a preview of the icons in the IconScout library.
3. Fun and function combined with new, exciting ways to get the colors you want for stunning visuals
Certain color combinations will always appeal to you, and it can be a waste of time if you have to recreate a color scheme for every visual you’re working on.
As part of our goal to make the user experience more efficient, the newly-redesigned editor comes with a universal color scheme feature.
Save your favorite visual’s colors and use them for a color scheme of future visuals you’re designing.
How does it work?
The magic of color picker’s eye dropper tool
What’s more, you can also find and extract the precise color you need for your visual with the addition of the color picker’s eye dropper tool.
Click on the eye dropper tool, drag it to your preferred color, and click once to implement the color change. It’s like magic!
The universal color scheme feature is available to Pro accounts, while the eye dropper tool is available for everyone.
4. Replace photos seamlessly
With Piktochart’s classic editor, you need to resize and crop an image every time you add it to a template.
This new feature is available to everyone.
Here’s what else is new in this editor refresh:
- Full-color customization of texts for charts and maps
- Masking is even more seamless
- More options for resizing presentations and texts
- More powerful auto-saving feature
- Improved viewing experience for various screen sizes with fit visual to view layout
- Reorganize content blocks or presentation pages in lightning speed through the right sidebar
