Since the launch of the new Ad Mockup Generator, we have received a ton of great feedback from our users. Below is a list of the new features, enhancements and bug fixes that we've made to make the tool even more useful for all users:

  • Pinterest ads: Create Promoted Pins, and Rich Pins (Movie, Article, Place, Product & Recipe) and view them across board (in-feed) and expanded (full-screen) placements.
  • Rich Pin Codes: In addition to creating standard mockups, users will also be able to generate Rich Pin codes to which advertisers can place on their website.
  • Big Picture Preview: See all of your mockup placements at a glance before downloading.
  • Image scaling across all publishers: Upload images of any size and mockups with scale accordingly.
  • Facebook Page Like ads: Available in video + photo format, in Mobile + Newsfeed and Right-hand Side.
