My ensure that nice is in the center of nice Pixar. I hear there you can see the purple line showing you that it's pointed in the center. So I'll leave it just like that. So finding talent is our problem. Knees, knees, hiring, see what books. So, so at least one fits perfectly right here, and also at least one. So on even this one right here. So finding talent is our problems. So let's see. So I'll be using this one right here. Or decrease the size a bit. I ensure that nice, It's nice is for the SHA-1 in the center and decrease the size just a bit more. Perfect. So woman on Twitter find 3 million businesses in the US. So this is, this one is pretty obvious. This woman right here. So let's see which one off. Nice lady would like to be in my Instagram post. Now? This one. This one looks great, I guess.

Because remember guys, persons will see in this post on our more by most likely a mobile phone, right? So is very important then for you to zoom in to see a whole. Well it looks. So as you can see right here, I created this post in literally less than 10 minutes break guys. And this is looking very professional. And obviously you can also change color to your brand color, change the color button, grow into your brand. Your brand colors, if you would like, kinda quarter of the elements, slash graphics to your brand colors, if you would like it. So it's very simple to create these infographics. You really don't have to be creating bar graphs and pie charts if you would like to know what, it's not needed. This is also an infographic as well, and this is not too complicated to create. So for beginners, I would highly recommend infographic post like this one right here. And this can be in any specific niche. It doesn't have to be about business, are intrepreneurship. It can be about fitness. Recipe is sports. Any niche that you're in, you can implement this strategy right here. You can implement this in any niche, literally, right guys? So if you'd like to change a color, it's quite simple. You can highlight the things that you would like to change the color off and click on the text color right here. And let's see if our example I've used in my brand colors for our success manifesto, which is my Instagram page that you guys saw in the examples, right? So let us click on this blue right here. As you guys can see right here. And I can also highlight the numbers with blue as well, just for it to just much my brand colors, right? So finding talent is a problem for 56 per cent. Blue, 12.3 million, blue. And last but not least, 61 percent. And rule. And as simple as that guy, and we've changed these into our brand colors. So if I should upload this infographic on my Instagram page, it would blend in with all my other Instagram post because it includes a brand colors. 5. Exporting Your Infographic: So a few things to note before exporting your infographic onto your phone, your laptop, your PC, whatever device you're using, you can actually change the name them. Off to pause right here. And as you guys can see, it automatically includes in the headline or Instagram post, both for you. It doesn't have to be like that, right? If it isn't like that, you can change it manually, right? So when you're finished creating your infographic post for your Instagram profile, you're going to click on No, No right here. Or one slipped in donor right here. You can also change the size if you like. What I would recommend for you to changes size because ten times 1080 pixels is the perfect size for an Instagram post. If you should look closely right here where it says compressed file, lower-quality. This simply means that if you compress the file, the quality of your post wouldn't really be bud, what? It would just decrease the size of the file, right? So if, let's say for example, your 495, those in hub, that most piece, which it should have enough space and only needs one Instagram post. What, if not, you can just compress the file right here and just click on known or idea. And also you can schedule your Instagram posts from Canva directly. If you would like. Some.
