What’s the Best Pinterest Image Size

Pinterest long image exampleAfter digging deeper into Pinterest I was wondering what the best Pinterest image size is?

Basic Pinterest Image Size Info

  • maximum image width is 554 pixel, anything wider will be resized
  • there is no limit to the vertical length of the image, but it would be best to limit it to 5,000 pixels
  • an image that is only 300 pixels wide is too small to pin

Why would you want to use a long image?

You can create a whole story with a long image like in the example on the right.

What program should you use to create the image?

I created my image in Photoshop, but Photoshop is expensive. There is an open source alternative to Photoshop called Gimp. This is a program you download and install on your computer. If you don’t want to install anything I recommend the online program called Pixlr that also allows you to work with layers.
