How to make a bar graph
1. Choose a template
Start by selecting a bar graph template.
2. Add your data
Determine your x-axis and y-axis. Typically one axis will be a category and the other axis will be a data value. Adjust the bars in the bar chart to match the values.
3. Customize color
Update the colors of the bar chart to match your brand. Use a single color for the entire chart or try adding a second color to make a particular category stand out.
4. Add text for context
Add a title, data labels and other context to the chart.
Step 5. Share your bar graph
Download the final bar graph as a PNG to embed it in a presentation or infographic or print or share the chart on social media.
