    Tall Images with warm colors, never show a face on any of the images you use on your website/pins, people seem to not like seeing other people in pins, the CTR drops for pins with human faces included.

    Especially for OPs question, read this infographic: https://bufferblog-wpengine.netdna-...he-Eyes-Have-It-Curalate-Infographic-copy.jpg


    A must read for anyone who works with pinterest, very valuable information -> https://blog.bufferapp.com/pinterest-marketing-guide-tips

    You can read anything about pin optimization in this article, ill use this blueprint on all of my content.

    the study is nice..but it is drawing all the wrong conclusions IMOWith 50 Million users it really does not matter what the majority does. It matters what your audience likes. My analytics show, that cold colors (blue & grey) are outperforming all other colors... so there you go :p

    I would suggest testing different types of pins depending on your audience, ones that I see that tend to work well are;

    * Tall Pins - these take up more screen space, typically image at the top, text in the middle IE title and then image at the bottom at a different angle
    * Progress Pins - Works well with food but images showing the process of the dish IE Uncooked chicken, Marinated chicken and then the chicken cooked
    * Number Pins - Pins that offer a decent number of things IE 15 Key Workouts to get your pumped or 25 Quick and easy Chicken meals
