Most savvy Pinterest users know that taller images have the highest rate of engagement. Because they are taller they cover more screen real estate and are more likely to be seen.
Because of this many people have begun adding tall, Pinterest-optimized images into their blog posts in hopes that it will encourage people to pin them. But the problem is– most social sharing buttons (or even the Pin extension) will just grab any image off of the page and make the pinner choose which one they think is the best one. On top of that, most pinners will choose to keep whatever default text is populated into the pin description because they don’t want to do the work of crafting the description.
Well we just don’t think that’s ideal. So we give you 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 are automatically given the right image and the right description.
