This paper describes the iterative design process and evaluation of mood pictures in a social music discovery service. The service enables users to consume and collaboratively create playlists based on the pictures. In total, 45 Finnish users took part in the qualitative evaluations. This paper presents the results regarding the preset mood picture design and introduces user-generated mood picture playlists. Based on the results, a set of design implications for mood pictures is introduced. In addition, the consistency of user responses from a quantitative picture–music association test shows the applicability of mood picture–music associations to a music discovery service.
