Introducing Highlights and Customized Profile Covers

Screen Shot 2022-03-01 at 8.22.01 AM.png

We are excited to announce that our new Highlights feature is now available to all creators! Highlights allow you to create Idea Pins into a group folder to feature at the top of your profile. You can create multiple Highlights to help you showcase content that matters. This feature is an opportunity for creators to highlight more content visibility to your followers. You can create Highlights using your Idea Pin and shop content. For more on creating Idea Pin content check out this article

Along with Highlights on your profile, you can now customize your profile cover and upload an image if you have a Pinterest business account. This customization allows you to showcase your unique vibe and branding! If you don’t have a profile cover, click Add a cover on your profile to upload an image. When choosing an image, some tips to remember: 

  • Image must be at least 800 pixels wide x 450 pixels tall
  • Using a horizontal image with a 16:9 aspect ratio is recommended

Check out this Help Center article to learn more about personalizing your profile.

What are Highlights on Profiles?

Highlights are a new feature that allows you to pin your created Idea Pins into a “group folder” at the top of your profile. You will have the ability to create multiple Highlights and we hope as Creators, with this new feature you have the opportunity to highlight your content that you want to be more visible to your followers.

How long are Highlights available?

Highlights do not expire and are available as long as your Idea Pins have not been deleted.

What happens if I delete the Idea Pin from my Highlights?

If an Idea Pin has been deleted, it will disappear from your Highlights.

Why is my profile cover now blank?

We’ve recently made some changes to make your profile more customizable for you! You can now upload images to your Profile to represent you and your brand. 

What does this have to do with Profile Highlights? Are they the same thing?

We are offering some similar functionality with the Highlights feature, in being able to surface your selected content higher up on your profile.

Highlights allow you to pin Idea Pins into a “group folder” at the top of your profile. You will have the ability to create multiple Highlights using your Idea Pin and/or shop content. By adding this feature to the Profile page, you have the opportunity to highlight the content that you want to be more visible to your audience and followers.

I would MUCH prefer if Pinterest gave us the ability to create Cover Photo Idea Pins/Videos that could be changed whenever we want to change them. This would be much more dynamic than a static image as a Cover Photo. The ability to add a Cover Photo Idea Pin/Video could be built right in to Pinterest, so creators could edit that area on the fly. 

Highlights are fine - they're just like Instagram Highlights (nothing real original) - and I'm sure they'll work well for many creators. But that static Cover Photo is a missed opportunity, in my opinion. One cover image just cannot convey the same branding and creativity as a video image. I hope this is a feature that will come back in the future.
