Whether you're creating cinemagraphs on Cinemagraph Pro for macOS or Cinemagraph Pro for iOS, you can share them on Pinterest in a few steps.

There are currently two ways your can share your cinemagraphs on Pinterest. While we typically recommend using HD video to display cinemagraphs on the web, Pinterest is currently an exception. You can't control autoplaying and looping video on Pinterest which is why a GIF is currently the preferred format. 


GIF

Export your cinemagraph from Cinemagraph Pro for macOS as an animated GIF. Alternatively, you can export your cinemagraph as an MP4 and save your cinemagraph in GIF format using Photoshop or a video converter. Read Saving Cinemagraphs in GIF format to learn about the best ways to save your cinemagraph as an animated GIF.

Note: Exporting in GIF format is not currently optional in Cinemagraph Pro for iOS. You can, however, export your cinemagraph as an MP4 and easily convert it to GIF using a free converter such as CloudConvert or Gifrocket.

Desktop
Click on the + icon at the lower left of the Pinterest homepage. Paste the flixel.com embed code and post your cinemagraph. Select Upload a Pin and then Choose a Photo. Select the GIF and add a description of your cinemagraph after the upload is complete. Select the board you want to add your cinemagraph to or create a new one.

Video (MP4 or MOV)

Export your cinemagraph from Cinemagraph Pro in H.264 (MP4) or Apple ProRes (MOV) format. Upload the video to a popular video sharing website such as YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, or TED and copy the URL.
