Learn how to create hidden Pinterest images in your blog posts with this easy to follow tutorial!
Create hidden Pinterest images when you want to offer a variety of pinnable options for your readers but don’t want to take up more space within your post for multiple extra large images.
Because I create many image driven step-by-step tutorials, pictures fill my posts. I don’t always like to add an additional pinnable image viewable within the post because I think it can look cluttered and not as streamlined as I’d like. However, I want to give my readers the option of pinning striking images that best represent the post topic. If they don’t have creative, attractive options, they’re not as likely to pin.
I’ve seen food and fashion bloggers who do lots of roundups create long collages for pinning and hide them so readers have more options for pinning. Whatever your niche, knowing how to hide images for Pinterest can definitely come in handy.
Wondering how? It’s easy to do! All it takes is a tiny bit of code. Now, don’t panic at the mention of code. I’ll show you exactly what to do and help you if you have trouble!
Here’s how to create hidden Pinterest images:
1. Add your pinnable images to your post. Do this just like you would with any image by uploading them to your Media and then using Add Media.
2. Click on the Text view tab for your post.
3. Find the image code for the image(s) you want to hide and add the following – <div style=”display:none”>
4. At the end of the image code, close the code by adding this – </div>
Here’s a video showing just exactly how these steps work:
