Get Ready to Share Your Mood Boards With the New Pinterest App
Pinterest has built its brand around users’ ability to share the things they love with their online communities. The popular website, which now has more than 70 million monthly visitors, helps create, discover and save ideas, recipes, and inspirations from around the web. Now Pinterest is taking it a step further by creating an app that will help users create and share mood boards on their mobile devices.
What’s a mood board? A mood board is simply an organized collection of images pulled from various locations online (Pinterest or otherwise) that reflects your style or preferences.
Introducing The Pin Studio
Pinterest’s new Pin Studio is here to make mood boards more social. It lets you create boards using photos and overlays that other users can re-pin, so you’ll be able to see how people are interpreting your ideas as well.
The app also encourages collaboration and creativity in many different forms – think board games, toys, recipes, clothing – anything at all! If you don’t have a mood board in mind or need some help with what goes where on the page for one, Pinterest has plenty of those too.
Check out their Ideas Page for everything from nightlife and fitness inspiration to fashion and living rooms! And if that’s not enough, there are over two million mood boards just waiting for you on this new platform.
Searching For Images
This process is called image searching and can lead you to find some new and interesting images that you might not have found otherwise. Once you’re on Google’s search page, type in what you’re looking for.
Google will suggest things based on your previous searches as well as popular trends from around the world, if your suggestion doesn’t work, try an alternate spelling of a word or add synonyms to broaden your search. If those don’t work out either,
Google will list pages that could have what you’re looking for on them. From there, all it takes is a click of a button or two, and voila! The answer is right at your fingertips!
Creativity can come at you like a tidal wave. And when it does, it’s good to be prepared with an idea of what you’re going to do next. To make sure your thoughts are saved and you can always find them,
creating a mood board is helpful. Using just different photographs, some fonts and icons you download from the internet, and some paint swatches – all free or inexpensive items – mood boards can give your creative mind focus when feeling stuck.
It’s also a great project for parents or kids who want to share with friends or family ideas for their rooms, gardens, painting projects, or whatever it is they want help with.
