Pinterest product specs

Check the specs

You can choose from several content formats on Pinterest, from standard Pins to multi-image Carousels. Use this spec guide for image dimensions, file sizes and character limits. This list includes both Pinterest ad specs, and guidelines for organic Pins. Once you’ve picked a format, check out our creative best practices for more helpful tips.

Standard Pin

These specs apply to both standard organic Pins and standard Promoted Pins.

Images

  • File type: PNG or JPEG

  • Max file size: 10 MB

  • Aspect ratio: We recommend using a 2:3 aspect ratio, or 1000 x 1500 pixels. Pins with an aspect ratio that's greater than 2:3 might get cut off in people's feeds.

Character counts

  • Title: Up to 100 characters. If you don’t fill out a title, people will see your Pin description instead.

  • Description: Up to 500 characters.

  • The first 50-60 characters are most likely to show up in people’s feeds, so put your most important info first.
