This article will be a guide for you regarding both the technical and more artistic requirements needed to keep in mind when taking a wonderful profile photo. So just keep on reading. Once you're finished you'll be a proper Pinterest profile photo pro!

How to edit your photo

Before getting into the technical and non-technical requirements needed for a great Pinterest profile photo, here are the main steps to upload the new photo:

  1. Log into your Pinterest account.
  2. Click the chevron down icon, which you can find in the top-right corner.
  3. Click on Settings.
  4. Next to your photo, you can find the “Change” button- click on it.
  5. Choose the image you wish to use and you’re done! 

Requirements for your Pinterest Profile Photo

Meeting the requirements is essential because, even if the photo looks great, there may be problems with the resolution, size, dimensions and other aspects of the photo once it has been uploaded.

Technical Requirements 

We work with photos for official documents such as passports, visas etc., so we are very careful with technical requirements. Obviously, in this case, they are not so strict, but if you don't respect them, you won't be able to reach your goal of having a very good photo and getting other users interested in your profile.

So pay attention to:

  • Pinterest Profile Picture Dimensions: Height = 600 px and Width = 600 px
  • Pinterest Profile cover Resolution: 72 ppi
  • Supported format for your Pinterest Profile Picture: JPG and PNG formats
  • Maximum size of your Pinterest profile photo: maximum file size of 32 MB

As far as the technical requirements are concerned, pay attention to the size and shape of the photo before uploading it. For example, if you use a photo that is too large, it will not be uploaded. 

Moreover, use a square photo. If you use a rectangular photo, it will automatically be cropped to a square shape and can often be resized by cutting off some parts that you had intended to show in your profile photo for Pinterest instead.

Non-Technical Requirements

Now let's move on to the non-technical requirements and some tips that can help you make a fantastic profile photo.

If you are creating a photo for your business profile, you will need to pay attention to one more essential detail. Your logo is undoubtedly important since it's what represents your company and often gets noticed first. If you are a famous company you can use it as your profile picture and will be immediately recognized. On the other hand, if you are a small business, it might be better to use another photo. Using a human face has proven to be the best option in numerous cases.

And what should you do in the photo? Smile, obviously! People tend to prefer smiling people, and in the case of a company, they tend to trust it more if they associate a friendly face with that company.

With our new tool, not only can you edit and enhance your photo to make it more attractive, but you'll also be able to grab more attention by putting a fantastic landscape or an image you like as a background.

When we work on photos for official documents, you don't have much of a choice. The background should be neutral: white, blue or grey. With social media, on the other hand, you can bring out your artistic side! Having an inspiring background will be sure to attract more visitors to your profile!

Pinterest Profile Photo Tool

After you've followed our technical tips, here are some non-technical tips that are worth taking a look at.

As previously stated, our app was created to edit photos for official documents, such as passports, ID cards, or driver's licenses. Therefore, thanks to the support of artificial intelligence, the photos are resized and cropped according to the requirements for that particular document. In addition, our app removes the background and adds one that is appropriate for the specific photo.

As for the background, we decided to develop a new tool to be used for other types of photos which are not meant for official documents. In addition to removing the original background of your photo, an extra feature has been added: You can now add the background you like the most. You can choose from our samples or upload your own photo. For example, we think that having a profile photo with a spectacular background such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Big Ben in London, or Machu Picchu can give an extra boost to your profile!

Thanks to this new tool, you'll be able to edit your background in peace and quiet and only a few seconds from home. You'll have plenty of time to strike a pose, adjust your hair, or fix your makeup.

The only thing left for you to do then is to stand in front of the camera, have your friend take a picture of you or take a selfie, and choose a background you love.

Don't you think it's great pretending to be in London, Paris or close to Machu Picchu?

Now you just need to follow a few steps to download our app.

Mobile App

The PhotoAiD app has a wide range of photo editing tools and software, and it is very easy to use! You will have a photo edited as if by an expert, even if you yourself are not!

Our app is compatible with iPhones and Android phones.

If you use an iPhone you can download our app from the App Store onto your device. If you use Android, you can easily find it on the Google Play Store.

You can prepare your Pinterest profile picture in a few seconds by changing the background with the image you prefer. When you have taken the photo, simply upload it to our photo app, and you’ll be sure to have a great photo for your Pinterest profile.

About the document

What is Pinterest?

Pinterest is an image and video-sharing social media network. This social network was primarily created to help users save and find information, designs, and items on the internet. 

There are many categories, such as recipes, DIY, home decor and wedding inspiration. Not only can you see and get inspiration from thousands of photos, but you can also interact with other users, called Pinners.

This social network uses its very own terminology. Continue reading to learn more about the main terms used in Pinterest to have a clearer idea of this social media!

As mentioned above, there are Pinners. Everyone who has an account on Pinterest is a Pinner, who has a personal board. A board is where you can save, collect, and organize everything you like, from images to every piece of content that is relevant to that category or theme. These Pins can be found directly on Pinterest or by searching on the internet. Users also have the option of uploading their own original content. Each pin contains an image, a link and a description.

We can say that Pinterest, compared to other social networks, is less social. What do we mean by that? While for example Instagram or Facebook are based on the principle of sharing photos, videos and other material about one's private life and showing something of oneself to others, Pinterest is more of a private network. It's not for sharing an image of yourself, but for collecting ideas, looking for inspiration and getting creative.

Therefore, Pinterest is a real "pot of gold" for ideas and everyone out there who likes planning and organising events, collecting ideas, scrapbooking and searching through inspiring designs and photography. There is no limit to what you can find. Images of the highest quality, interesting and curious ideas for all kinds of events, sewing patterns for cool Halloween costumes, recipes for drinks on chilly Autumn days, movie night ideas and much, much more. Are you looking for a LOTR inspired Lembas recipe? They’ve got it. How about ideas on making your own Butterbeer at home? Pinterest has that too. In addition to being inspired by the content of other users, you can also serve as a source of inspiration to others. That is not all though! While it’s true that a Pinterest account is mostly created for personal use, there is also the option of creating a free business account. This can be a great opportunity for your business, as a well-managed profile can drastically increase the visibility of a business.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s get to creating your Pinterest profile, and Pinterest profile picture!

How to create a Pinterest Profile

Here are some steps on how to create a Pinterest profile image:

  1. Go to Pinterest and select Sign Up.
  2. Choose between signing up with your email, Facebook or Google account.
  3. Log in with your credentials.
  4. You are now welcomed to Pinterest and will be asked to answer some questions regarding your interests. When thinking of the endless amount of content, it’s important for the social network to be able to filter content based on your specific interests.
  5. Please confirm your email address.
  6. Now you are ready to explore the world of Pinterest! Get inspired by the millions of ideas you'll find on Pinterest, save everything you like to your boards so you have all your inspirations organised and easy to find.

If you want to create a business profile instead, follow these steps:

  1. First, you can choose whether to link your private profile to your business profile. You can also choose to create two separate ones. It's up to you!
  2. Fill out your email, password, and business name, and then select a business type.
  3. Select an Account.

The business profile is similar to the private profile, except for the bonus of getting access to the site's free marketing tools, such as Pinterest Analytics. 

Pinterest Analytics helps you check your overall presence on Pinterest. It shows you which content has resonated the most on Pinterest, whether it's organic or paid content, published content, Pins posted or Pins saved by users from your verified domain.

Review your overall performance, analytics data for videos, Pins and top boards, and learn more about Pinterest Analytics statistics and how to filter your data.
