Here I will show you how to create a vision board using Photoshop.  You need to have Photoshop or other photo editing software and some basic photo editing skills.  It is easy and fun!

Step 1: Create a new image file with the default size  of 1024×768 pixels. Use it as a board to hold all the images.

Step 2: Search on the Internet to collect pictures and words that speak to your heart and inspire you the most. For example, you can use Marineland images  as key word to search on Google to get hundreds of Marineland related pictures.  Save one or two images you like the best as .jpg file in a folder.  There are lots of great images on the Internet.

Step 3: Open the saved image file, select the image and drag it to the vision board.  Each image attached to the vision board is a different layer on its own.  Give each layer a meaningful name for the convenience of future editing.  As you lay the images on the vision board, you may re-organize them based on the importance of different themes. Create your vision board using Photoshop screen  shots.

Save the vision board as .psd file first so that you can always go back to edit different layers or add different visual effects to the vision board.  You can also save your vision board as .jpg or .gif file to be used as desktop wallpaper or printed as a photo or poster.
