How to take better photos for Pinterest

Pinterest has had a very helpful set of tutorials recently. Last week it was  How To Make Pins Great, and this weeks is How To Take Better Photos.

I post these links for the benefit of TpT sellers too. A strong thumbnail or preview picture will make all the difference to your store. Time and again I read posts that say a photo of the product in use in a class has a positive impact on sales too. For example, my  top three crafts all have great photos taken in a classroom.

The full post is at  Pinterest of course and covers:

The basics
  • Good lighting
  • Clear and focused
  • Taller aspect ratio
Three types of product shots
  • Clean and simple
  • Paint a picture
  • Inspire Pinners to take action

The free pInterest App. I use this on my iPhone. I very rarely have need to visit the site via my computer as all the notifications I need appear in the app.
