My Pinterest image is not showing up

Note: If you found this article via Google and you're having trouble with your Pinterest images not loading despite not using our service Placid, you can do two things:

First, check with our free tool Social Share Preview which images are visible for Pinterest on your site. If you don't see the image you want to pin, there might be an issue with your site – maybe because of lazy loading, or the wrong image formats.

If you see your image there, check with the Pinterest Rich Pin Validator. This will force Pinterest to visit your site!

We hope this helps!

If you use Placid for WordPress, your Pinterest image will not be displayed in your blog article. Only Pinterest will be able to pick it up and show it to users that pin your article's URL.

If you want it to be visible in your blog article, this is the way to go:

Save the Pinterest image in your media library and add it to your article

Go to the article where you want your Pinterest image to show up. In the Placid-Settings below the article, change to the Pinterest tab. Click on the button Save to Media Library.

Place your cursor wherever you want your image to appear in the post text editor and add the image from the media library.


If your Pinterest image is not showing up when pinning your article, try this:

Try using Pinterest's Debug Tools

It could be that Pinterest did not check your site for a new image yet. Use the Pinterest Rich Pin Validator to tell them to do this. Just enter the URL and click "Validate".


If that didn't work, please check your Pinterest Settings for Placid in WordPress. Find how they should look like in our Getting Started Guide for WordPress!
