Pinterest provides users with inspiration for a range of topics, including fashion, design, food and home decor.

It is incredibly easy to type in search queries and find images to pin and collect as a Pinterest board.

As a social platform, Pinterest is primarily a visual-based. Therefore, it is important that your images for your profile and postings are always of the highest quality.

Profile photo
The profile photo is important because Pinterest has no header image. Your profile photo is the primary means for your followers to identify and recognize you. The recommended size for profile photo should be a 3 x 3 in square which will be cropped and displayed as a circle.

Pinterest’s interface is portrait-oriented so vertical pins with a 2:3 ratio are best. The optimal image dimension is 8 x 11.5 in, however, pins will be displayed with a width of 2.5 in with scaled height. This means Pinterest allows you to upload longer images since only the width is fixed.

Board cover
The first thing your followers see when they visit your Pinterest page is your collection of boards. Aside from naming them properly, you also need to pick an interesting or relevant photo among your pins as your board cover. The board cover frame is square with a recommended size of 6.25 x 6.25 in.
