Publisher Terms: Modification, Translation, Editing

  • Design: Graphics may be modified to complement your page design or in-house style and the fonts changed as required
  • Editorial: The words in graphics may be translated or edited at the discretion of your own editors
  • Resource: Graphics may be re-used to complement different stories and the graphic elements (but not picture elements) used separately or in your own graphics.
But please remember to credit appropriately. This is most important.

Graphics are easier to modify if you know how they have been constructed. Details are given in Translating and editing Guides for graphics constructed in Adobe Illustrator. Instructions are also available for iGraphics.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
