When you first learn about Pinterest, you’re likely to be confused about the platform.
The first thing you’ll see is the postcard gallery, which shows you your favorite posts.
There’s also the Discover tab, which allows you to search for any post you might have, and a Search feature that will automatically add it to your feed.
Picking the right post for your room, for example, might require searching for a specific image.
In this post, we’ll walk through how to make the perfect Pinterest postcard.
Choose the right color.
As with most social media platforms, Pinterest has a selection of colors.
You can pick the color that’s most popular in your room or post your own.
When choosing the right colors, be sure to take into consideration your mood and your room decor.
Color can also help your posts stand out.
“I love yellow, and I like the yellow tone,” says Amanda Lutz, an illustrator and designer based in Seattle.
She adds, “If you have a light-to-dark gray room, you should be able to pick up on the tones of the postcards in your bedroom and kitchen.”
Choose a postcard that’s a good fit for your home decor.
If you’re like most Pinterest users, you probably already have a room decor project in progress.
If so, you may not realize how many photos you need to put up in order to get the most out of your space.
Here are some tips for selecting the right photos for your Pinterest postcards: You should also be careful about what you’re putting up.
“You don’t want to put too many colors in a photo because it’ll make your photo look bad,” says Lutz.
It’ll look like the pictures are taken with too many colours,” she adds.
Choose images that match the room.
You don.t want to paint over an image to get a room’s vibe.
For example, you’ll want to use pictures of plants, flowers, or furniture to make your room feel unique.
Don’t use the same pictures over and over.
“Don’t go over and paint the same picture over and above,” says K.S. Haney, an artist and illustrator based in Atlanta.
Haney adds, however, that if you do, the photos won’t match the tone of the room well.
Use the right photo format.
Most Pinterest posts are automatically generated by the site.
A good way to save time and effort is to use a post card that’s more than one photo, or an image that’s both photos and an image.
This way, you can pick one image for the background and one for the post itself.
“Paint on one side and use a dark background on the other side,” says Haney.
Another way to make it easier to pick out the right image for your photo is to make sure the image you’re looking for fits your room.
“Just use the image as a guide, and if it doesn’t, you don’t need to worry about it,” she says.
Select a post that’s appropriate for your theme.
This is a biggie if you have an eclectic theme for your rooms.
It’s also a good idea to keep in mind that your Pinterest posts might not match the colors you want for your specific room, but you should still pick something that matches your mood.
“If you want a light color, go with a light background,” says Katie Smith, a graphic designer based out of San Francisco.
“If there’s something in the background that’s too dark, try a dark tone.
Use a selection tool.
Pinterest offers a selection feature to help you pick the right images to use in your posts.
It can be a simple tool or an algorithm that can help you narrow down your selection of posts.
If you’re using a post tool, you want to choose one that’s easy to use.
Choose postcards that match your room’s decor.
In this example, we’re looking at a room that has a bright, bright blue wall that will make your home feel unique, even though the room is meant to match the decor of the home.
Make sure you have enough space for your posts to stand out in your space and on the wall.
Your postcard is a powerful, colorful tool for capturing your guests’ attention and bringing a smile to their face.
Choose an appropriate color and frame.
With a post, it’s not always the same color or frame.
It depends on what you want your post
