    Hi Mitt, just finished reading Jab Jab Jab Right Hook by Gary V. I’m a huge advocate including web url on images, along with logo/watermark. Gary V repeatedly states only the logo. You state both. Here’s my question:

    Should the url, on the image, ONLY be the home page or specific page? I hate it when links go to the home page, which happens more often than not on Pinterest. Ppl neglect to click on the blog post, to use the SPECIFIC url. I often have to Google to find a how-to … I’m love DIY crafts, but those pinners refuse to link to correct article.

    So, in the text area, I’d link to my specific url. But in the image? It’s longer, cluttered, but when the image is shared elsewhere, not on Pinterest, the direct link is gone.

    I suppose best to only use home page … keep it simple. But just thought I’d run it by you.

    PS I have to post as a guest cos I don’t know my password. Nowhere to retrieve it. Hmmm … and I am tired of signing everything via FB. WHY must be sign in with a third party?

    Confused what you mean by 10% vs 40% background? As an artist, that makes no sense to me. How do we determine a % of a background??

  • Jenny Lens

    You really think ppl share depending upon colors? Not content? Colors sure don’t make a dif to me. My interests are dolls (Barbie, fashion and hand-made), DIY crafts, crystals, vintage photos, and most of all, real art. Like paintings, vintage and new illustrations, esp classic childrens’ books, tarot, mythology and fairy tales. Plus tons of inspiring sayings, photo infographics, and social media images, like yours.

    I dunno how 10% vs 40% background or which colors affects my pinning other’s images.

    That’s like saying one is buying a Van Gogh cos the walls are yellow, so the sunflowers work better than the potato eaters. I think the sunflowers work better cos it’s a happier image.

    I just don’t ‘get’ some of yr findings. Or maybe, I don’t care. I’m not going to create pins to be repinned as if it’s ‘painting by numbers.’

    I love Pinterest cos pinners gather and share the MOST amazing images on the net. Images never seen before or needing only library books. We share because images resonate on emotional, visceral levels.

    Understanding readability, color theory, typography goes a LONG way. I repin some cool sayings which might look fugly. It’s the thought that counts. As a trained, highly educated, exhibiting artist, graphic artist/web designer, photographer (my photos in major museums and galleries), I think you are missing some of the big picture. Plus being vague about some of yr findings. IMHO.

    MAYBE you are only talking about social media pins? Merely asking for clarification. I really appreciate your posts. BUT understand I have not read many. I don’t have time. It’s vital that each post stand on its own.

    The downside to infographics is its appalling lack of details. No examples re 10% vs 40% background. Run that by any art or graphic teacher and they will say, what? Sure there’s positive and negative space, balance and symmetry, but you can’t measure it. And that’s not the terminology you used.

    Thanks ;-)

    Heard a webinar by Twitter Gal or something like that. Emphatically exclaimed BLUE images attracts more attention than other colors. You stated red. I say it’s more about the content and context, as well as colors. I’ve studied enough color theory in my many art classes and indie studies to say: just use the colors which resonate with you, flow with the topic, and be thoughtful about images, colors, textures, text, context. Simple. Have fun.
