Pinterest is an incredibly powerful digital tool. It can serve as social media by connecting Pinners with pins and users who have similar interests. It can be a mood board, a reading list, and a database all in one. You can also use Pinterest as a marketing tool to promote your own content.

Take your original content, such as written blogs or travel photography, and turn it into an eye-catching pin to create brand awareness and invite new audiences to your site.

Make a Customized Pinterest Pin Graphic with Adobe Spark Post

Let your personality shine through creatively designed pins with Adobe Spark Post.

Pinterest Pin Size

The feed on Pinterest is displayed as a sort of collage, arranging pins of all different sizes next to each other like a lattice. However, the columns in the feed are fixed while the rows are not, which gives vertically formatted images the upper hand.

The ideal image size for a pin is 735 x 1102 pixels or a 2:3 aspect ratio of a different size. If your content is square or horizontal, try cropping it to fit in this vertical 2:3 format. If that’s not an option, a horizontal or square graphic will work, but may appear smaller in the feed. Pinterest is a place for sharing ideas so don’t be afraid to make something creative.

How to Create Custom Pinterest Pins

  1. Choose Your Canvas Size

    Adobe Spark Post comes loaded with all sorts of different canvas sizes. You can also create a custom size. Find a pre-made “Pinterest Pin” size under the “Resize” option in your Spark workspace, which is set to 735 x 1102 pixels. This is a 2:3 aspect ratio, which is ideal for Pinterest. If your content is square or horizontal, try cropping it to fit in this vertical 2:3 format. If that’s not an option, a horizontal or square graphic will work fine.

  2. Explore Professional Templates

    Adobe Spark Post’s collection of templates is a great place to start if you need some direction in creating your custom pin. If you find a template you like, you can always resize it to fit the Pinterest Pin size.

  3. Add Photos to Your Background

    A good photo is the perfect foundation for an eye-catching pin. Upload your own content right to your workspace. Another option is to explore Spark’s library of stunning stock photos.

  4. Add Graphics to Your Design

    Once you’ve added your photo, bring in some graphics to take it to the next level. Drop in bold type and enhance it with text effects. Explore Spark’s free icon library for graphics to use as complements to the design or social icons. Play with layout options to add in additional photos or borders.

  5. Animate Your Design

    Use text and photo effects to enhance content already in your design. Explore animated GIF icons that you can sprinkle into your design so it can stand out in the Pinterest feed.

  6. Save and Share Your Design

    Once you’re ready, Spark will help you export your design. Save the design to your device, then upload it to your Pinterest boards. You can also share a link to your design on the web. Spark Post saves all your designs in the Projects folder so you can pause at any point and return back to your design.
