Analysis: How to Create Better Images for Pinterest


Lots of us love Pinterest! Though it has been stated many a time that it is a social network for women, I really do that men that love the finer things in life (such as bacon, alcohol, the latest in our fashion, portrait inspiration, bacon, more bacon, and more geeky stuff) can also find a soft spot in their heart of the social network. Recently a company named Curalate has been doing some hardcore research into the platform and discovered something shocking in regards to what people love to pin and repin.

Apparently, people love food. Specifically, they cited a particular Paula Deen dessert.

What else you ask? Human faces are a no no. They need lots of colors, a non-distracting background, the image to be portrait style and somehow or another find a way to incorporate red into the image.

So what does this mean besides that people have a serious case of the noms? Well you can use it for your own business. If you’re a wedding photographer, be sure to share images of the cake and the decorations. Maybe have your bride wear red lipstick during the engagement shoot to make things pop a bit more. Make things colorful. As it stands, the Weddings category on Pinterest is huge.
