I’ve made several in MS Paint. That’s about as easy as it gets. You need to have the pictures saved to your hard drive for that to work.

There’s a lot of different ways. StyleMePretty has an inspiration board builder that does it for you if you choose photos. I found it a bit complicated, though. I just made mine in powerpoint on one slide- no need to save images, just copy and paste from the internet and resize/arrange as necessary.

You can also download Picasa for free.  Just type it into a search engine.  They make it for Mac and PC.

There is always Polyvore, which makes it pretty easy for you.

if you have a google account, you can also use google docs and export the files as PDF to share! Or do screen dumps of the slides. 🙂

It helps if you have Photoshop, but even Paint will work.  If all else fails – do it the old shool way – print out pics (or cut form magazines) and create a physical board.


I did my first one  here

you can make one on dessy’s website: http://www.dessy.com/styleboard/

that’s how i made mine. you just have to upload all the pictures, but it worked pretty well for me and then i could pick pantone colors that matched with the colors i was going for.

I save pics on my computer, then arrange them in Powerpoint. If you have adobe writer, you can pdf it and save it as a .jpeg. Otherwise just do a screenshot (print screen button on your keyboard) and paste it into MS Paint. Wow, I just reread that and it sounds complicated, but it really isn’t, I promise!

I use Fireworks for mine.  But yes, agree that powerpoint can work.  I’m trying to figure out a way to allow pics to be bookmarked into a little online booklet.  wouldn’t that be awesome?  I’m talking to my techy friends about it…
