How To Create A Mood/Inspiration Board I: The SuperEASY Way

So… you want to make a mood/inspiration board, eh? Well, hopefully I can help you out with that task with some guided instructions on how to piece together your masterpiece in either Photoshop (or GimpShop — the free graphics editor) or using some quick online tools. I’m not sure if my instructions will be the best ones out there… but according to google searches by tireless bee’s, they might be the only ones around the web.

The superEasy Way

If you’d like to make a simple mosaic of your inspiration images, then you can use MosaicMaker. You have the option of using the URL of your image from another source (Flickr, Photobucket, etc.) or you can create a free membership on their site and then upload them for the mosaic. Once you’ve picked out your photos you can easily transform your photos into the following formats:

a) Square tiles
Any combination of tiles that you can think of (2×2, 3×4, 5×4, etc) with a maximum of 36 squares.

b) 4×4 with large center
Spots for 13 of your favorite images… with one dominating the scene

You can also change the background color and the border color, and increase/decrease the spacing between the photos with a simple click.

Here are a couple of mosaics that I whipped up in 5 minutes from my directory of inspirational images:



Now that’s the superEasy way to transform your inspirational images into an actual board… up next is a short tutorial on how to use Photoshop to make a more dynamic board using layers!

    Health care clinics will carry flowers, whatnots, magazines, and many others.
    Becoming a celebrity means setting up a good public image.
    Potentially the world’s most famous luxurious brand is Louis Vuitton. Also be cautious, many underground websites offer fake retail receipts you can print on.ルイヴィトンのバッグ、さらに着色
