While on Pinterest this week I found a new tool they've added that I thought was pretty cool. I think it's been around for at least a few weeks now but as always I'm late to the party.
It's brilliant so I had to share. When you open a photo in Pinterest you'll see a little square in the upper right hand corner:
Click on that and a ton of other photos that are similar to the one you you're looking at will pop up on the right:
You can expand the cropping so that it "reads" the whole photo:
This gives you even more (and I think better) comparative photos. This is awesome!! Be sure to use the scrolling tool on the right to see all of the photos they suggest.
What's even better is there are descriptive words and phrases across the top -- click on those for more specific examples that match those phrases. It will still use your inspiration photo to find those.
I do find it works best when it's a full shot of a room or vignette. Pins with only words don't translate and it doesn't always recognize close up photos well. But for wider shots this is such a great option!
When I'm looking at ideas I tend to look at Pinterest first and search there -- are you like that? Google has become my second source. This is so helpful when you find a specific decorating idea you love.
Loved this and thought I would share! Hope you have a wonderful and safe weekend. :)
