Pinterest has a fun feature called Pinterest Lens that makes it easier for users to find inspiration for fashion, cooking and art projects. You can discover ideas for projects by simply taking a picture of anything such as food and clothing using the Pinterest mobile app.
If you find something that you like when you’re away from home, like a coffee table you saw at a cafe or an exotic fruit you found at the supermarket, all you have to do is point your phone’s camera at the object and the app will show you images of similar items, styles and even recipes that you can try. Take a picture of a table and it’ll show you similar-looking tables and how you can style it in your home, or take a picture of an apple and it can show you recipes for apples, like apple pie or apple turnovers.
Pinterest Lens can also help you find an outfit, whether it’s for a special occasion or for a regular day out. You can take pictures of clothes that you already own and the app can help you make an outfit when you’re stuck trying to find something to wear. If you have a favorite denim jacket that you want to wear for the day, you can a take a picture of it and the app will show you different pictures of ways to wear a denim jacket and what you can wear with it.
Unfortunately, if you take a picture of a unique item you might not be able to find the exact item on Pinterest. Basically, the app will show you a collection of photos with the item you’re looking for or of items that are quite similar. It works best for finding ideas on interior design, fashion and food.
Even if you’re not an active Pinterest member, Pinterest Lens is definitely something fun that can inspire you to try out new styles and projects. You can try out Pinterest Lens on the Pinterest mobile app, which you can download on the App Store and Play Store.
