The old-school way: Start with a corkboard (like from Staples) and cut out pictures from the magazines as you are looking through them. This can help you see things side by side, and make decisions on different choices.

Also, if you are in the beginning phrase and trying to pick out a color scheme, I recommend this blog (which has already made inspiration boards).

http://theperfectpalette.blogspot.com/ (I really liked being able to see all the different color inspirations and it helped me and Fiance pick out our colors)

If you do want to make your own, you can go to http://www.dessy.com/styleboard/ You can browse by color and put together your own digital inspiration board. Good luck!

The easiest way I make them is to use Power Point.

I collect a bunch of ideas of what I am looking for and then I insert the pictures onto one page in Power Point.

You can also use the inspiration template from Style Circle.  You need to become a member first.  Also, you need to use their pics unless your willing to download photos.  If you download a photo though, you need to give the source of the pic.


Here is a board I made on style circle.

I second the Dessy site.  It is where I made mine.

I made mine with Photoshop. You just open up a new file. Then you copy and paste the images you want to use and use the Free Transform tool to move them around.

Yep, I used photoshop too! 🙂 

Easier if you make sure your canvas is in “pretty” and even numbers.  Like, 800px square. Then if you divide it into an imaginary “grid” it can help in cropping and making all of the pictures fit together.

I do mine in Microsoft Word. Right click on the pictures and go to “Format Picture” then “Layout” and then choose “In front of text”. This will let you move the pictures around. I also use the crop button a lot and usually add a thick black or white line around my pics to make the edges look neat. Adding a background in a solid color or print helps get the mood acroos too. My most recent one is here: http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/03/25/inspiration-20-2/

I agree with just using powerpoint.  Once you have all your pictures together in PPT, you can group them all (select all pictures, and right click to group).  Then if you right click on the whole image you can “Save Picture As” and you can save the image as a .jpg to share on weddingbee!
