Google Drive is considered a convenient, safe, and practical storage solution for various file types. With 15 GB of free space per user, expandable with paid options, it's ideal for storing not just documents and spreadsheets, but also graphic content.

Infographics are a prime example of the versatility Google Drive offers. This interactive way of presenting complex information makes it easier to perceive and improves understanding of the current topic. Moreover, you just need to create an infographic on Google Drive to convert the link into QR code and seamlessly share the content with other people.

Users can upload graphic content in a variety of formats to Google Drive. Here are a few of the most popular options:

– JPEG is a standard format for photographs and images with a low compression level;

– TIFF is a type of graphic content with support for high resolution and multi-layering;

– SVG is a vector format that allows you to scale the image without losing quality;

– PNG is a popular image type that supports background transparency;

– PDF is a universal document format that preserves the original formatting of graphic elements and text;
