One of the best social networks to share a large number of images and varied interests is Pinterest. From this social network we can share a large number of images whenever we want. But for that, the first thing we have to be clear about is how to create a Pin for Pinterest from a PC or mobile device ..

Create a pin for Pinterest from a computer

image

The first thing we are going to have to do is go to the Pinterest website from the web browser and log in with the account. After this we will have to click in the upper right corner, on our username, to be able to go to the profile page.

image

In the lower right corner of the screen, we will find an icon in the shape of a "+" we will have to click on that icon..

image

When we do, a new menu will be displayed and we will select the option "Create PIN" or "PIN".

image

To load an image from the computer, we will have to select the first tab that says " Create Pin " and then we will have to click on the box that is on the left side that has an icon with the shape of an arrow pointing upwards..

image

When we click on this icon, a window will open from where we will be able to locate the file we want to upload. Once we find it, we will have to select it and then click where it says "Open".

In order to name our Pin, we will have to click on "Add title" and write what comes to mind.

image

A little further down we have the description box. Here we can add a short description of the PIN, URL and tags.

image

Once we have everything configured, the only thing left to do is click on "Save" in the upper right corner, it is a red button and it will ask us to choose a board for the new Pin.

Under the heading "Create board" we will have to select the board where we want to save the Pin. Alternatively we can select "Create board" in case we want to create a new one for this Pin.

How to create a new Pin from iPhone

In order to create a new Pin from iOS , we will have to open the Pinterest application on our iPhone. Next, we are going to have to touch the "Home" or "Start" icon found in the lower left corner of the navigation bar.

image

Now we are going to have to locate the icon in the form of a camera and we are going to have to click on it.

Here we have the possibility to take a photo or upload an image from the mobile phone gallery. In order to access the photos on our device, we will have to click on the icon in the lower right and then select the image we want to use.

image

Regardless of whether you selected an image or took a photo on the spot. Then we will have to click on the Pin title to be able to add a title to it; We will also have to click on the description box to include more details of the photograph that we are uploading.

image

Once we have finished configuring everything, the only thing left to do is click on the red icon in the upper right corner of the screen, which says "Next".

After this we will have to choose a board for the Pin and voila, we will have the Pin created and saved in a board of our Pinterest account.

Create it from Android

In the case of Android, creating a Pinterest Pin is quite similar to iOS, maybe a few things change, but not too many.

image

For this we will have to start the Pinterest application and then we will have to click on the "Start" icon.

image

After this we will have to press in the upper right corner of the screen, on the icon in the form of a camera.

Here we will have the possibility of uploading a photograph that we have in the image gallery of our device; we can also take a picture at that time.

image

After this we will have to enter the title of the Pin and a small description if we think it is necessary.

image

In the upper right corner we must press the red button that says "Next".

Next, we will have to choose a board for the Pin and voila, we will have that Pin published on our profile.

Another option is to design our Pin in Canva, it is something very easy to achieve. The first thing we will do is log into our Canva account from their website . From the home page we will have to click on the option "Social networks".

image

We will have to click on the arrow that points to the right, at the end of the social media options. After this we will have to click on "Pinterest Pin (1000 x 1500)".

Now we will be able to design the Pin the way we want with all the options that Canva provides us. While we are designing the Pin, Canva automatically saves the design for security reasons.

image

Once we have finished, what remains to be done is to upload the image to Pinterest and for this we will have to click on the icon with three ellipsis in the upper right corner.

image

A new menu will appear and we will have to look for the icon that says “Download” or “Download” in order to download the file to our computer.

The file will be downloaded to our computer. After this we will have to go to Pinterest and publish the Pin as we discussed earlier in the article.
