Introducing SlideShare’s New Infographics Player

Got infographics? Upload, discover and share infographics with our optimized infographics player!

We are excited to announce the launch of a new player on Slideshare specifically for infographics. Though we have hosted infographics in the past, our new player optimizes the viewing experience of the increasingly important content type.

Like all SlideShares, a viewer can easily share infographics on social channels and embed them on other sites. Uploaders can see how many views, downloads and embeds their infographics have garnered. SlideShare PRO users now have enhanced analytics, which include graphs and the ability to drill down on data.

The new player automatically detects an infographic upon upload, includes it in the infographic directory and displays it for best viewing. Infographics need to be saved and uploaded in a one-page PDF format.

Below are some examples of infographics on SlideShare from creative agencies including ColumnFive, Jess3, Ogilvy WorldWide, Ethos3, and MSLGrou; infographic marketplaces like; and companies like Salesforce, Marketo, Kivney, Kelly OCG and Network Appliance.

Now try uploading your own infographics to SlideShare and see how they take off! Need tips on how to create a standout infographic? Check out our infographic on what makes great infographics, above, designed by Column Five.

    Great feature – very useful for embedding options so infographics don’t dominate on blog/website space.

    Great goods from you, man. I’ve take note your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely fantastic. I actually like what you’ve acquired here, certainly like what you’re stating and the way in which in which you say it. You are making it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it wise. I cant wait to learn far more from you. That is actually a wonderful website.

    Is this available for non SlideShare Pro accounts? Ie is it free?

    The issue I have is that while there may well be an infographic that comes CLOSE to what you need for a particular presentation, because they come in PDF form they’re not reusable. A particular infographic has to be EXACTLY right or it’s essentially worthless unless you want to recreate it and have the appropriate skills and tools to do so.

    I’ve tried to upload an infographic twice, and unfortunately it ended up in the documents section not the infographics section. I was really hoping to get my first infographic posted on SlideShare! Oh well…

    Hi Courtney,

    In order for your infographic to appear in the infographic player, the width-to-height ratio of the PDF must be greater than 1:2. Hope that helps!

    I’ve tried to upload infographic but unfortunately it always failed and ended in the document section. How can I upload infographics?

  8. Agnieszka Walorska

  10. slideshareblog

    Hi Agnieszka — can you please provide more details about the size of your upload, and the steps you’re taking to upload it? Do you see any error messages? Thanks!

  11. Michelle Hughes

    I uploaded my infographic ok but Slideshare has removed a hyperlink – are hyperlinks still not supported for infographics?

  12. CordeliOx

    mine is DEFINITELY over that ratio yet still is uploading as a presentation – and it’s not actually appearing it’s just white blank on the page.
