Here are five ways to make Pinterest images with your iPhone:
1) Vertical Photo + Text on Photo App Pinterest Image
If you’re already taking photos of a product, make sure to get a few good vertical ones in the mix. Leave some blank space for text (see top arrow below) and then use your favorite text on photo app (like Word Swag) and add text in the space along with a watermark.
Want to go even more vertical? In the iOS camera app, you can tap > Edit > the Crop icon > 9:16 and get an even taller image (see bottom arrow).
2) Snapchat Photo + Text on Photo App Pinterest Image
Don’t think I’m crazy, but if you’re a Snapchat user, use your Snapchat camera (it’s really good!). Swipe and see if their filters help make your image look even more amazing. Then save to your camera roll. Continue on with your text on photo app. (This image is just for demo purposes of course, but you can see the photo quality of Snapchat can be really great if you’ve got decent lighting.) I used Word Swag for the text.
3) Frame Magic Collage or Pic Collage + Text on Photo App Pinterest Image
When I have multiple photos to showcase, I absolutely LOVE using the Frame Magic app for my Pinterest images. By touching “Ratio,” you can change the size of your collage to a vertical one (9:16). Leave one of your frames blank (see top white frame below) to add text afterwards either in the Frame Magic app or your favorite text on photo app.
This app is simply amazing because you can create all your social media posts with just one photo. And they provide stock images to choose from also. Just choose Pinterest for your size (or if you swipe further to the right, you’ll finder some even taller sizes), add some text. and call it a night. (This image was actually a Frame Magic + Word Swag + Adobe Spark Post design. #totallynotnecessary :P)
5) Canva Pinterest Image
So the fabulous design website Canva has an iOS app now. If you already have an account, guess what?? Your past designs are there and totally editable within the app – amazing!
This app is also similar to Adobe Spark Post in that you can do many different social media designs within the app. It is not as quick and easy, but the pre-designs for Pinterest images are fantastic and help lay the groundwork for your designs. (I did pay $1 for the stock photo you see here.)
Be sure to add your watermark after you make Pinterest images with your iPhone
Most of these apps don’t allow you to add your business logo watermark so I ran my images through iWatermark afterwards.
