An aesthetic edit or aesthetic post, also known as a moodboard, is a type of image set. It is visually unified, often by being desaturated or having a specific color tint added. In fandom, it is common to see aesthetic posts about individual fandoms, pairings, or characters. They might include shots of the character from canon or a fancasting of the character, images of locations associated with that character, images of props associated with that character, etc.

Aesthetics are particularly popular on Tumblr due to the ease with which sets of images can be posted. A number of aesthetic boards also exist on Pinterest, which also lends itself to collecting sets of themed images, either uploaded by the user or from elsewhere on the site.
