So, you’ve made something using Flourish – congratulations! 🎉 The next step is to share it with the world.

Publishing your visualization or story to Flourish
When you’re ready to share your project, the easiest option is to publish it to Flourish. This will create a public page containing your project, plus some share and preview buttons. To do this:
You will then see a box like this, asking if you want to "Allow anyone to duplicate this project and data". Checking this box will add a Duplicate and edit button to the public visualization page (read more here).
If you do check this option, when published, the Export & publish window will show you that this option has been chosen. To prevent the project from being duplicable, just hit Republish and uncheck the box.
If you are on a Business plan, you will also have the option to password-protect your visualization at this stage.
Once you've published to Flourish, the Export & publish button will change from black to green. If there are unpublished changes to your visualization or story, Export & publish will change to orange, and a new Republish button will appear.
Embedding your project on a web page
If want to include your visualization or story on your own web page, you have two options.

Note: This option is only available on Business and Enterprise plans, as well as legacy Personal plans. You can find out more about our different pricing plans here.
Embedding on Medium
Although Medium will not let you paste in HTML like our embed code, you can still embed Flourish visualizations in Medium posts. Simply paste the visualization URL on a new line, press Enter and Medium will automatically convert it into an iframe.
Getting an image of your visualization
Sometimes, it can be useful to have a static image of your visualization – for example, if you want to post it on Instagram. Most templates do have a Download image option in the Export & publish menu, but the most reliable way to get a static image is to take a screenshot.
TIP: The keyboard shortcut on Mac is
Cmd+Shift+4, and on Windows 10 is

Please note that except on our Business and Enterprise plans, it’s strictly required to include a link back to Flourish wherever you publish or embed an image of a Flourish graphic.
