How to Make a Dynamic Mood Board Using Create
In this quick and simple tutorial, we’ll look at how you can make a dynamic mood board in the online editing app, Create.
If you’ve not used Create before, don’t sweat it. Follow the simple steps below to create a high-impact mood board, even if you’re a beginner to the software.
In Create, click File > Create new > Templates. Type “mood board” into the search bar and select a template to customize. Click to open.
Choose a mood board template from the selection listed below.
Click on an image on the template to select it. As you can see, there’s already guidance on the canvas to click each image then select Replace image.
Right-click and choose Replace Image.
From here, you can browse a wide range of stock images to use on your mood board. Alternatively, upload an image from your computer by choosing Replace Image > Computer.
You can also change the color swatches on your template to suit your chosen images. Click on a swatch square then click Change Color.
Select a color from the Solid or Gradient palettes, or use the Eyedropper Tool (as we did) to pick up a color from one of your chosen images.
You can also copy the hex code and paste this into the text frame below.
Continue to drag each cell to position as you desire.
Since the text is covered, you can right-click on the photo that covers it, then select “Move to back.” Do the same for any photos to dictate which ones you want in the front or back.
Once you’ve positioned your images accordingly, simply select your background color by highlighting the layer, then clicking Change color.
We used the Eyedropper Tool again to find a light blue that would make this color swatch pop.
When you’ve finished working on your mood board, you can click on the Download button at the top-right of the workspace. Select your preferred file type, then Download again.
Now, upload to your website, social, email, or wherever you see fit.
Your animated mood board can now be uploaded to your site or social media account. Great job!
