Pinterest has been the go-to source for creative images for many years.
Now the company is adding a new dimension to its art and design offerings.
Pinterest is now allowing users to post visual media stories in the format of a Pinterest Newsfeed, where users can add news items to their stories, share them with their followers, and view them from a wider audience.
The new features, which were first announced in an article published Thursday on The Verge, allow users to add images, videos, and text to their posts in a variety of ways.
For example, you could post a story with an animated gif, a photo with a 3D model, or even a photo of a real person with a caption.
Users can also add links to the stories, which are then presented in a sidebar.
Here are the new features.
“The new tools are designed to provide a richer and more visual experience for users, and to help them connect with our community of artists and designers,” a Pinterest spokesperson told Business Insider.
Users are also able to view and comment on their stories.
The company says the new tools will work with the Pinterest News feed in the coming months, and it plans to add support for the news feed in future versions of the product.
The Verge’s article on the new tool also provided a brief description of how to add visual media to a story.
You can either link to the story or post it to your favorite Pinterest boards.
“This new feature makes it possible for you to add content to your story that could not be included in the Newsfeed,” the spokesperson explained.
“It also provides a richer, more visually-rich experience for your audience, who can see the content in a new way, from the newsfeed or other places.”
Pinterest has also introduced a new visual media editor, allowing users who are not using the new “Art” visual media reporting tool to add their own visuals.
“When you are working on your story and want to add some visual imagery to it, you can just click the new ‘Artful’ editor and you’ll see a list of your favorite photos and other visuals,” the Pinterest spokesperson said.
The updated tools will also help users to manage their stories more effectively, the spokesperson said, as well as allow them to create content that is more relevant to their audience.
“We think this new tool will make it easier for you and your audience to share your content and engage with it more effectively,” the representative added.
“You’ll get more creative and more interactive in your stories, and you can see and comment about the content.”
The new feature comes at a time when Pinterest is already making efforts to improve its art collection and editorial process.
In May, the company announced that it was going to open up the world of Pinterest to a broader set of users, allowing anyone to upload content to its site and publish it on the platform.
The move followed the success of the original Artful feature, which was only available for users who owned a certain amount of pins.
In June, Pinterest announced it would begin offering a new tool called Pinterest Arts, which allows anyone to create a Pinterest Art story.
