According to the Pinterest blog, one of the request many users had was asking to be able to choose which pin was used as a “cover” for your various Pinterest boards.
Well, ask and ye shall receive!
The Pinterest blog states:
Covers on collaborative boards can only be selected by the Pinner who created the board. Other than that, you can choose new covers as often as you’d like, so we hope you’ll have fun customizing the look of your boards and profile.
Here’s how to do it.
First, pick a board.
Then, hover over the top photo on the board (your most recent addition).
Then choose a photo.
And you’re done!
