How to create advanced Olioboards

Olioboard Design Tutorial

In preparation for the upcoming Layla Grayce Moodboard Design Challenge we have decided to share several blog posts to provide some great tips and tricks on using Olioboard to help you create gorgeous room designs. This is the final installment.

Our friend Stacy Naquin has already provided a nicely detailed overview on the basics of using Olioboard. You can find that post here. This post will focus on some of the advanced tools with video tutorials. We will show you how to use them to manipulate the images on your moodboard and create more detailed and polished looking room designs. So let’s begin!!

Tip 1: Use the background and texture libraries to create a base for your 3D design When creating room designs on Olioboard you can opt to create 2D collages (like the one below), made up of a collection of images or you can choose to create a 3D space (like the one above).

Olioboard Design Tutorial

If you are interested in creating a 3D moodboard design, the best place to start is in our background and texture libraries. Olioboard has a collection of empty room images that you can use as a base for your moodboard design. The room images include various styles such as contemporary, industrial, traditional, and outdoor spaces. Once you have chosen your background image, you can customize the image using our texture library. The texture library contains various textures like, brick, stone, barn boards and more. In this video tutorial you will learn about the libraries and how to build your 3D moodboard design with perspective in mind.

Tip 2: The Crop tool is your best friend You’ll find that this tool will be one of the tools you rely on the most. This video tutorial will show you how to use the crop tool to manipulate images, create clean moodboard designs and how to crop and rotate visuals so they appear to be half hidden by walls or railings.

Tip 3: Make the most of the advanced background removal tools Olioboard’s background removal tool can help you separate the background from an image you wish to incorporate into you design. It can also help you clean up the edges of the product to create a more polished look. This video tutorial will show you how to use the advanced background removal options to maximize the look of your room design.

Tip 4: Creating 3D moldboards on Olioboard In this 15 minute in-depth video tutorial, we take you through every step, from beginning to end on creating 3D room designs on Olioboard. This tutorial covers all the tools in detail and in repetition.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog post. We can’t wait to see all the entries in the upcoming Layla Grayce Design Contest. Good luck to you all and happy Olioboarding!

Pamper yourself with these aromatic treats for the soul – or treat a friend to a gift of Mor. Better yet, we’ll treat you. We’re giving away two Emporium items of your choice.
