Do you use some special software, or just whatever comes at hand , from paper to paint and photoshop?

Just whatever is handy. Sometimes it's just a folder on my phone or laptop or I'll lay out a quick montage to print a few hard copies on crappy 8.5x11 paper. Just something to have around.

I have always done so on foam core boards or on a 4'x8' white board that I have.

I've recently tried using a moodboard app for the iPad, but I still getting used to it.  I do use Evernote with shared notebooks to communicate with a team, and make pdf files I can drop into it.  Recently started using Penultimate and Skitch to compliment that.  If you haven't heard of Evernote google it - it's a free app that runs on your desktop and mobile devices and keeps everything synced up.  I did get the premium version, which costs a little, but not much. 

But, for me, at some point it always comes down to the physical:

I use pinterest! And, it's easy to share to the rest of the crew.

so ripping images of a magazine and gluing them together on a board  to show your team members in a meeting would bring usage attribution issues?

No, it wouldn't. Neither does putting together a moodboard with images referenced on google to share with crew or talent. Pay no attention to the man behind the MM curtain. http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-basic/wink.gif

Tearing them out for private viewing among team members is one thing, having them on your website (promoting a commercial enterprise) is another.

You are opening yourself up to a liability whether you want to believe it or not.

Normally I setup a moodboard on pinterest, post some shots that I like and fit the theme. The great thing about pinterest is its a collaboration tool so people in the team can contribute their ideas.

I have a folder on my computer with thousands of inspirational images.  I usually comb through it and pull relevant images, then arrange them in bridge.  But since making a PDF in bridge is sort of rudimentary, I usually build them page-by-page in photoshop with images and explanatory text, then merge those files into a PDF in bridge.  Complete pain in the ass, haha! 

I've heard several people mention Pinterest, and I still have no idea what it is, but that word popped up in my dreams last night so I'm going to take it as a sign and look into it!
