Question
infographics - Sister cities international
infographics - Sister  
Hello,
I really like the infographics I attached and I would like to know which software I can use to create one similar to it. Also, it Photoshop is an appropriate software for that, you may direct me a a tutorial or guide that teaches how to do one.

Specifically, I would like to create an infographics with a world map on the background with lines that connect one city to another. It doesn't need to be too complicated or fancy.

Thanks

Answer
Hi Henrique,

This image was created using Adobe Illustrator, not Adobe Photoshop.

Here is a link to an online video course from lynda.com on infographics. If you are not familiar with Illustrator, they also have a great series of training videos on that as well.
