You get access to basic collection of shapes and icons like arrows, connector lines and various silhouettes. You can also upload your own graphics with a few clicks if the basic library doesn’t offer what you need. Text can be easily customised with range of fonts, colours, styles and sizes.

It is pretty basic, but offers enough options to make a decent looking infographic for your website, without hiring a web designer or learning how to use a more advanced graphics program.
