I love Pinterest. Most of you know that.
Lately, Pinterest has been changing things up a ton and the recommended Pinterest image sizes just seem to keep changing.
I used to have a ton of long pins but now they are all cut off in the Pinterest newsfeed. Oh the horror.
We’ve since made the necessary changes, so not to worry, I’m here to sort out the confusion for you!
What’s the newest Pinterest pin image size that works for 2019 then?
The recommended Pinterest image size for your pins:
The recommended pin dimensions are 600px by 900px.
If you are using a different width, just make sure that it is a 2:3 ratio.
For instance, 735px by 1102px works too.
I would recommend sticking to the official Pinterest image size because you never know when Pinterest will start changing things up again.
Pinterest has also said in June 2018 that their algorithm will start favoring pins with a 2:3 ratio.
So stick to this golden ratio if you can!
At what dimensions do Pinterest cut off its pins at?
You may still have a couple of infographics you have created that just cannot work with a 2:3 ratio.
Pinterest starts cutting off pins at 600px * 1260px.
If you are using a different width, just make sure that it is a 1:2.1 ratio.
For instance, 735px * 1543px will precisely meet Pinterest’s cut-off point.
What performs the best?
Historically, longer pins have always performed better for me. If you go to my Pinterest account, you will find many long pins from older posts that have done exceedingly well.
Unfortunately, this probably will not last.
With Pinterest’s changing algorithm, pins that are using Pinterest’s recommended golden ratio will start getting more preference in the Pinterest search algorithm.
So once again, here’s a summary of 2019’s image pin sizes:
Pinterest pin image sizes updated for 2019:
- Pinterest profile image: 188px * 188px
- Recommended pin size: 600px * 900px
- Pinterest cut-off dimensions: 600px * 1260px
There you go!
I hope this has helped. If you found this useful, pin this bad boy on one of your boards in case you need to come back to this post?
