Ever since I heard that Picnik is closing I have tried to come up with alternate ways to collage my photos together. This is how I like to do it:
It works well for a few photos and I am going to miss being able do this, but it does not give you the ability to overlap or give information about the items. I have never really mastered the computer mood board but I have been playing around with Olioboard and although I have not figured it out completely, I do like what it allows me to do.
It is nice to be able to give a client a better visual but trying to master all these new techniques is time consuming and mind boggling. I would love to hear what programs you use for mood boards and if you have a program that allows you to simply collage your photos.
I need to learn to do this as I seem to have images saved in many spots and gathering them in one collage would be so helpful.
There is one other one that many designers use. I will find out the name and report back.
I use Olioboard too Sherri and I really like it. It looks like you've gotten really good with it too. I love this board that you put together and the blue that you brought in. I like that Olioboard holds the sources for the products as well.
pve design might be referring to Polyvore? I've tried it but I was more accustomed to Olioboard so I stuck with it. I've also contemplated purchasing Photoshop Elements but I know there will be a learning curve with the program.
I've yet to master the online collages. In college, I used powerpoint, but now that I work on a mac...I don't really use that anymore. I used Polyvore once, but I don't really like that it doesn't really work for room inspiration shots...usually only individual items.
I'm looking forward to trying out some of your reader's suggestions!
Well, my skills need some help. I make collages in Picasa and Olioboard. Everything takes time to learn your way around it!
Thanks Holly - this was my first attempt so I'm sure it will get easier. I do love that it gives you the sources.
Thanks Kim - your collages are great which just proves I need to spend more time getting it better. I did download Photoshop but it is complicated and I have not had time to educate myself on that either.
You did great for the first time and I love the rug you picked! I have tried Olioboard, Polyvore but the one I am using all the time is mydeco.com. I just find it easier to use.
Have a good weekend, Sherri!
