Cheat Sheet to Image Sizes

Pinterest has a new look. Along with this new look the image sizes have changed. So I created this cheat sheet on Pinterest image sizes to help you stay up to date.

Profile Image

Profile Image

165 X 165 Pixels

The Pinterest profile image measures 165 X 165 pixels. Pinterest recommends you upload photos with square dimensions that measure 600 X 600 Pixels. The larger images will be resized to fit.


Pin in Feed

238 Pixels X Adjusted Height

Pins in the feed will have a width of 238 Pixels and the length will be adjusted depending on the height of the image.

Expanded Pin Size

735 Pixels X Adjusted Height

When you click on a pin, it will expand to a width of 735 pixels and again the height will be adjusted depending on the size of the image.


Complete Board Size

238 X 284 Pixels

The complete board which includes the cover image, the latest pins (thumbnails) and the follow button measure 238 X 284 Pixels.

Cover Image

The cover image measures 217 X 147 pixels. Any important text and/or images in the cover pin should be placed inside the boundaries of 217 X 147 pixels.

The tiny thumbnails which can be found below the cover image measure 51 X 51 Pixels.

Images on Websites

The images on a website need to be a minimum of 100 X 200 pixels for you to be able to pin them.
