How to Create and Delete Pins on Pinterest

Pins make up a huge chunk of your experience on Pinterest. If you want people to know your interests or creations, you can use pins to make your Pinterest board more personal and special. If you’re new to Pinterest, you might not know how to utilize pins for your profile. Worry not; we’re about to teach you how to create and delete pins on Pinterest.

What are Pins on Pinterest?

Pins are bookmarks that you can use to save content you’re interested in on Pinterest. You can search for pins, save one you like, and even click some of them to learn more about certain content. While you’re free to create your pins, Pinterest can remove them and your ability to create new pins for violating the community guidelines. Ideally, you shouldn’t create pins or content that are harmful or derogatory to other members or communities.

You can upload JPEGs of up to 20MB or MP4 files of up to 200MB. For images, the minimum resolution must be 200 x 300 pixels.
