    When I create a post in WordPress, I supply a feature image for the post.

    This image does not have the optimal dimensions for Pinterest, but Yoast plugin

    always supplies the featured image in the open graph tags.

    Is there some way to supply a second image for use with open graph that plays well with

    Yoast WordPress plugin?

    Thanks, I will give it a go. I am not sure if open graph will override just a plain div.
    If pinning gives me the option I will run with it

    I dug into the Yoast code, and I came up with a solution. I posted it as a feature request, but if its not accepted, I will just create my own patch.

    this solution would also work for any other social media site that needs a specific image size for a specific post.
