Pinterest best practices
We recommend that you use high-quality, vertical images that will stand out in people's feeds. We recommend a 2:3 aspect ratio (ex 1000 x 1500 pixels) as other ratios may cause your Pin to truncate, or may negatively impact performance.
We recommend that you use clear titles and descriptions, as these will help your Pin get discovered in search. You can use up to 100 characters for your title and up to 500 characters for your description.
Standard image specs:
File type: PNG or JPEG
Max file size: 20 MB per image
Ratio: 2:3 or 1000 x 1500 pixels
Link: max 2048 characters
