For those who lack the experience in designing or those who don’t have the time or the luxury of spending hours creating professional infographics, presentations, or other visual content, the newest version of Visme brings the ability to create and centralize all of their content creation and digital media assets all in one place. 

Visme is an extremely user-friendly, flexible app that is changing the way ideas are visualized and stories are told with the power of visual design, animation, and creativity.

Latest version—Visme Unleashed

After a hard work of 18 months, Visme has rolled out its biggest release till now — bringing new features to the platform that are not yet seen within any other tool in the market. 

Now users can leverage new features and assets to take their content to another level, such as: 

  • Over 500+ customizable animated illustrations, characters and gestures.
  • An expanded offering of project export formats to include editable Powerpoint, GIF, and video!
  • Thousands of HD-quality videos and audio clips for your video creation.
  • Simple & Creative presentation themes each with over 325 slides across 20 categories.

Visme has also changed the UI of the editor interface based on user feedback to improve the entire content creation experience and workflow. Overall editor performance also has been made faster and stronger to boost load times to help you create beautiful content in minutes.

Visme took design and content creation to another level

While Visme has already taken on PowerPoint as the new way of presentation creation, over the last year, there is tremendous growth in the number of users migrating from other design tools for the non-designer like Canva, Infogram, Piktochart, and Venngage to name a few. 

Visme found out that the users are likely to experience fatigue and move to Visme to give their content more edge.

Who is Visme for?

Visme is used by bloggers to create graphics or interactive presentations and infographics to support their text content and increase engagement with their audiences. Teachers and students are using it to improve their communication. And small businesses and organizations are using it to better engage and market their products and services to their target audience.

Users can start from a preset of professional templates or start from a blank canvas and create their own content, fully personalized to their specific needs. 

Visme is free for all users; it takes just a few seconds to register and start creating your first project. Most features are free and other features, such as downloading projects for offline use, password protection, access to premium widgets and templates, are available for an affordable fee starting at $14/month.

The ability to publish a project and access it in various forms also gives Visme an edge over other online tools. Users can easily publish and share their Visme online, embed it into their website or blog and even download it as an Image, PDF, editable PowerPoint (PPTx) or as HTML5, which will preserve all interactivity/animation and can be used offline.

What is unique about Visme?

There are various presentations and infographics tools online. But many are either too difficult to use, have a steep learning curve or have limited features with various restrictions that prevent users from creating content that serves their specific needs and helps their content stand out. 

Visme is the only application that allows full capacity to create powerful and real presentations and infographics from one app and one learning curve.  It also takes things one step further allowing one to add interactivity to projects by adding video, audio, and even third party widgets to embed to projects to name a few. 

Its interface is so intuitive that users feel right at home after a few minutes of use. Its easy-to-use features and tools make traditional tools feel complex and outdated.

Now, Visme has opened up the ability for users to create a video (MP4) and animated GIFs. 

Rather than spending money on additional tools to produce presentation videos, or social media videos and GIFs, Visme users can centralize all content formats in one place with one universal interface.

Visme is different because:

  • It does more than just create one type of content. It’s the multi-tool of visual content: Great for both Infographics and Presentations.
  • Requires no coding or design experience
  • It’s intuitive and easy-to-use yet balanced, with a range of features and flexibility to personalize the content that meets brand guidelines.
  • End-to-end presentation creation with a vast library of thousands of ready to use design templates and slides. Plus, the ability to animate and apply interactivity to presentations in seconds.
  • It’s fully HTML5-based, so content is both web and mobile-friendly. 
  • It allows users to download content in all popular formats:  Web URL, Image, PDF, editable PPTx, HTML5, MP4 video, and GIF.
  • It allows users to add interactivity and animation to any object.
  • Ability to attach music/audio to your project and record own audio within Visme

Visme Features

Visme allows users to access millions of assets right within the application.  From text widgets and animated text to millions of searchable images and thousands of high-quality vector icons (most of which being editable to your brand colors) in over 25 categories, there are tons of graphic assets for every type of project. 

New: Animated Graphics

Visme recently launched over 500+ customizable animated illustrations, characters, and gestures that can be dragged and dropped into any projects. 

These animated graphics are one-of-a-kind, built in-house by Visme’s graphic experts and exclusive to Visme. (You will not find them in any other content tool). 

animated-graphics-1

They are fully customizable with over a dozen poses, changeable skin color to support diversity, and with users having the flexibility to apply their brand colors.

Characters include casual, professional, mascot and bots (left) with over 15 poses that can be adjusted by speed and repetition (right).

Illustrations are available across 10 categories with three styles: flat, outline and isometric.

Blocks of Content

Although you can insert individual objects into Visme, you can tap into a library of suggested content (on the left panel under the “Basics” tab in editor).  This allows you to quickly locate and drag-and-drop groups of complementary content to create your design. 

Users can even create their own blocks (more here), which can be used in future projects across any format under “My Content” within the “Basics” tab in the editor.

Presentations

The new Visme offers users hundreds of new design templates with endless options for any creator.   

Most presentation tools provide you with a set of presentation templates. This is how Visme started (which we now call “Legacy templates”). 

But most people want to access more slides than the average presentation template provides. For example, why have one agenda slide design when you can have 20? 

This was the basis of launching a vast library of custom slides (over 900) within twenty presentation slide categories. We have featured our Modern style for a couple of years, and we have now introduced two new designs to our users: Simple and Creative.

New: Conversational Presenting

Published presentation projects now have a new navigation feature allowing presenters the flexibility and conversational presenting they need today.  

The new drop-up menu allows a presenter full access to any slide in their presentation instantly. Users can still use the linear slide-by-slide navigation, but now, if a presenter wants to skip ahead to a future slide or revert back to a previous slide, this drop-up menu gives presenters full control of their presentation.

Conversational Presenting

Infographics

Not only can you access hundreds of beautiful, custom-built infographic templates; but you can also now start from a blank canvas and access a large library of content blocks, which you can stack on top of each other. 

These blocks can be easily adapted to your content and rearranged with one click to build your own custom infographic in minutes not hours.

infographics

Create everything

Visme users still have all of the content types they’ve needed before: Presentations, Infographics, Document, Printables, Web and Social graphics, and Custom sizes. And soon, Visme will also feature a project category for Videos! 

Manage Your Branding

Although Visme provides tons of fonts, a large icon, and a graphic library, we also allow you to manage and set your own branding requirements. 

You can upload your own fonts, set your own templates, add your logo for published content, and even set your own brand colors.  Learn more about it here.

Teams can deactivate the ability for their users to select different fonts, colors and design templates outside of their brand guidelines, as well. Giving managers and administrators the peace of mind knowing that their brand standards are being met by everyone using Visme.

Full Animation Engine  

Visme utilizes a powerful yet easy-to-use animation engine. Virtually any object can be animated with a couple of clicks. Simply click on an object, and you can apply an animation preset from the “Animate this Object’ button.  

You will also be able to go Objects list and view the position of objects with respect to each other on an animation timeline and adjust to your liking. 

In the new, upgraded version of Visme, everything runs off one timeline, including infographic widgets and audio, allowing for seamless control. This way, every animated object will appear on the same timeline.

Fonts

Visme has over 120 professional fonts that can be applied to virtually all text objects. Simply drag and drop a text onto the stage and click on the font drop-down menu to select from a variety of fonts in all popular styles.

From contemporary to handwritten, calligraphy or even typewriter, there are a variety of styles to satisfy any project need. Users can also change parts of a text; for example, they can apply a font/style to a single word and maintain a different font/style in the rest of the text block.

Text Editing With Visme

Add granular styling

Highlight portions of text and apply custom styling specifically to that content. You can now highlight words or phrases within a text block and apply them to style while maintaining the rest of the content’s formatting intact.

In the former Visme text editor, it was not possible to have different fonts in the same text block. The new version provides further flexibility by allowing the use of multiple fonts and styles within the same block, reducing the number of layers needed to achieve the same effect.

granular-styling

Copy To Slides

Copy multiple objects from one slide to another slide versus doing them one by one. This is very useful for users who want to copy a specific set of an object(s) versus duplicating an entire slide.

Lock/Unlock Objects

Easily lock and unlock objects. Tired of that large image/shape behind your smaller object getting selected? Right-click to launch the contextual menu and lock the object or apply other effects.

lockunlock

Global Color Palette

A color applied to an object or text will be saved into a global color library so it can easily be applied elsewhere. Every time you create a new color, it will be added to your global library so you can reuse it for the rest of your project.

color-pallete

Audio Engine (Feature)

One of the most requested features is the ability to upload your own audio MP3 files. We provide a fantastic library of audio tracks that can be attached to one slide (for presentations) or used as background music for an entire project.

audio-engine

You can even record your own audio, attach it and manage the timing and fade controls from one panel.

Shared Library

Visme also enables you to reuse images from other projects, which are all stored in a shared library.

Charts

Visme also offers powerful data visualization capabilities through a series of Infographics and Chart Widget tools.

charts

Data widgets allow one to quickly turn simple data and numbers into dynamic, easier to understand visuals. From a speedometer to counters, ribbons and radial dials, each widget allows users to fully customize the data to display specific values.

The Chart widget offers seven variations of data representation in the form of pie charts, bar, and linear graphs. It simplifies the data visualization process to the point of enabling users to generate charts within seconds. Users can also import spreadsheet data and generate a chart on the fly from the imported data. 

New chart types and the ability to compare sets of data

Visme has introduced doughnut-shaped charts and scatter plots. With non-circular charts, you can use a series of data in order to compare values against each other.

By default, all charts are animated so when you load them, you can see them form into the final design. You can also turn off animation via a simple on/off value under Settings.

For Teams and Companies

Visme also has full team plans allowing multiple people to access and share projects with each other and set permissions and roles.  Learn more about the team plans click here.

What’s Next?

New categories of content, more interactivity, and more templates and assets will be added soon. Visme’s mission is to empower non-designers to create and share content they can be proud of.
