Pinterest is an image based platform and a great way to get traffic to your site. Tall images are best for Pinterest. Embedding one into your blog post allows your readers to share it or pin to their account for later. However, the vertical images can be a bit cumbersome in a blog post and disrupt the flow.  But there is a way around this.

How To Hide Pinterest Images

Assuming you are using WordPress or have access to the html/text editor of your site, there are 2 ways to hide an image in your post.

First Option

  • Add the image to your post as usual
  • Open the html editor of your post and add this line into your image code
