If you want to make an infographic, you have some options to choose from. Of course, you can do it from scratch. Or you can download a template and put your own information there. Also, you can use Google Slides. And there are two options here: you can start from zero, or you can use a template. In this article, we are going to learn how to make an infographic on Google Slides using a template.
I’m writing this article assuming that you, my reader, are familiar with Google services, or at least some of them. You probably use Google Drive to keep files there, and I bet you use Google Docs and Google Photos.
But today we’re going to talk about Google Slides. This tool can’t be underestimated since it can become a great helping hand in creating presentations.
Let us consider the easiest way to make an infographic - we’ll use a template. Follow these step-by-step instructions to create your own info-sheet.
First, you’ve got to find a template. Google it and you’ll see what a wide choice there is. For example, I purchased the Wander template. You can buy this one, too, or you can try something else. I recommend that you check out TemplateMonster’s Google Slides Themes or Infographic elements.
Now that you’ve chosen a template and downloaded it on your PC, you need to unzip it. I’m sure you needn’t be told how to unzip an archive. But after you’ve done that, you need to upload it into Google Slides.
Go to Slides.
Open the Blank presentation.
So far, the process was the same as if you wanted to create an infographic on your own.
So now is exactly the time to upload your template into this blank presentation. Go to File → Import slides...
Then choose Upload and Select the file.
Here it is, already unzipped.
At this point, you can choose what slides you want to include in your infographic. You can choose separate infographic slides, or you can choose all of them. After you’re done click Import slides.
To make it simple, I decided to include only three slides to build this infographic. After I uploaded them, here is what I’ve got.
As I have a template, I don’t need this first blank slide, so I’m deleting it.
Now I have to do something with the size. We need to make our first slide vertical. For this, go to File → Page setup.
Now you choose Custom settings, choose Pixels, and adjust the sheet at your discretion. I recommend you set it to 700 x 1800 pixels.
After you apply the changes the slides will be vertically stretched.
Don’t panic. Just keep building the infographic using the elements you want.

You can also select more than one element at the same time.

Now I can copy the elements from the other slides and paste them into the first slide.
I can also stretch the elements like this.
