Ugh, don’t use Paint! lol. Well maybe you can but don’t make it as wide as the whole space allows.  Mine is around here somewhere.

If you have pictures etc saved on your computer, you can go to http://www.mosaicmaker.com and arrange them in whatever order you like…

Go to polyvore.com. You can clip images to polyvore (or use ones already on the site) to make inspiration boards. It’s explained pretty well on the website. Good luck!

It’s also easy to make your own using Picasa, which you can download for free!

You can also use style circle as well!

I’ve never used anything except Photoshop though, so, well, I might not be the best recommender. :p

I made mine in Microsoft Powerpoint! I don’t have photo software, and I really didn’t want to download or buy any. I also don’t like the white space in between pictures on some online sites. So I just collected the pictures I wanted to use and inserted them all as images on a single slide. It makes it really easy to move pictures around to where you want them in the collage, and of course, it is easy to resize the box. Then, when I was finished, I “started the slide show” so that the collage would fill the screen with no gaps. Hit the “print screen” button, pasted into Paint and saved it. To resize it to something workable for posting online, I just uploaded it in its large size to my photobucket account and did their resizing. Typing it all out sounds like a lot of steps, but it is really simple and I like that it works with stuff I already have, basically. Hope this helps.

I also used Powerpoint and it was super easy! You can save the slide as a jpeg.

I used Skitch to grab lots of pictures and then just played around with them, dragging and dropping, in Keynote. And then I took a screenshot of it and converted to a jpeg. 

I have a feeling I did it the long, obnoxious way.

lampshade — I did not know that. But as I will be making a new board, I am glad to learn. Thanks!
