Steps to make a tall Pinterest pin image:

1. Open TurboCollage and set your collage to use the 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.
