Pinterest is an excellent social network for people interested in arts, crafts, fashion, design, etc. If you're a publisher, a popular pin can mean an enormous amount of web traffic.

Steps to make a tall Pinterest pin image:
1. Open TurboCollage and set your collage to use Mosaic pattern.
2. Since we're looking for a tall image, use Portrait orientation.
3. Select a tall size; you can choose from an existing list of sizes or set a custom size. There're many tall sizes to choose from - 2:1, 3:1, etc. For this tutorial, we have used a custom size of 1000px X 2470px.
4. Use the cell splitting tools to achieve your desired picture arrangement as shown in the screenshot below. View the demo video to follow this in detail.
5. Add photos to individual cells and leave the cell where you intend to add text empty.
6. Add text.
7. Export your picture to a JPEG file and use it in your pin!
