How to Change Cover Picture for Pinterest Boards


Since the launch of new features for Pinterest user profiles, one of the main feature or suggestion from Pinterest users is that to change, add cover image to pin boards. Now with this new feature similar to facebook profile cover pic or facebook group cover pic, you can customize the image that will set the cover of your pin boards.

From now on, when accessing the profile or the content of the boards you can see the option when you mouse over an image on the pin board. You get the option “Edit Board Cover”, allowing us to place an image selected as the cover board picture and the possibility of locate their position within the frame.

Just 3 simple steps :

Open you Pinterest profile

Hover the mouse to any pin board, click ‘Edit board cover’

Select any cover pic from the pin images and adjust the frame.

Finally click ‘Set cover’, that’s it.

Covers on collaborative boards can only be selected by the Pinner who created the board. Other than that, you can choose new covers as often as you’d like.

For a limited time I'm sharing some select Tips and Tricks and How-To Guides for FREE.

    Is there a way to remove the board cover and make it go back to the default of the most recent pin being the board cover?
