On Pinterest, taller images have the highest rate of engagement and click-through. This is because they cover more screen real estate and are more likely to be seen and clicked on.
Because of this, people tend to seek out tall, Pinterest-optimized images for their blog posts in hopes that it will encourage people to pin them.
The problem is that most social sharing buttons (or even the Pin browser extension) will just grab any image off the page and make the pinner choose which one they think is best. On top of that, most pinned images come with default text, meaning pinners have to do the busywork of crafting descriptions for every image they pin.
Social Warfare includes the option to upload a Pinterest-specific image right from inside your WordPress editor and set the description yourself so that when someone clicks your Pin button, they automatically see the image you want and the description you’ve written.
Simply scroll down to the Social Warfare Custom Options box under your blog post editor.
Scroll to the Custom Pinterest Image and click the “Add media” button. Once you’ve uploaded the image, just type your pin description in the Pinterest Description box.
