Introducing Bannerbear

January 2020

New Year New Me — introducing Bannerbear, the successor to Previewmojo. Auto generate Instagram Stories, Pinterest Pins, Open Graph images and more.

We've been working hard over Christmas and New Year to bring you a massive update.

Today we are introducing Bannerbear.

Firstly, the principles are the same as always. Our philosophy is: give us a url, we generate a banner. That means we look at your webpage, find the images, titles, contextually-relevant information (e.g. price, ratings) and assemble a banner design for you. The big difference now is we can generate more formats!

Here's everything that's new in Bannerbear!

Auto Generate Pinterest Pins

Effortlessly grow your brand via Pinterest. Bannerbear now outputs designs in 1000x1500 resolution, perfect for sharing on Pinterest. Now you can add one line of code to your site and have beautiful, unique pin designs for every page - whether you are an online publication or an ecommerce store. Example:

Auto Generate Instagram Stories

Bannerbear now generates long vertical designs in 1080x1920 resolution perfect for Instagram Stories. Instagram Stories is an incredibly popular channel with users but the temporary nature means it's hard to justify manually creating content for it.

With auto-generation you have a great way to start harnessing the power of ephemeral content, but with minimal effort! Example of all sizes Bannerbear outputs:

Auto Generate Square Instagram Posts

We haven't forgotten about the square format :) Bannerbear outputs the square format for use in regular Instagram posts or even display ads.

Updated Pricing Plans

We are introducing The Bear Essentials Plan as our new entry level tier but it is significantly more powerful than the previous entry level.

In addition to being able to create all of the new size formats on the entry level tier, you can also now add an unlimited number of domains. That means with one Bear Essentials account you can use Bannerbear on all your websites, or all your clients' websites. The only limit is on the number of pages you can import (1 page = 1 set of banners), but with a limit of 1000 pages, the Bear Essentials plan should get you pretty far :)

More Import Options OTW

Up for release next - import and export by API, for the techies out there! And import by excel for the spreadsheet wizards.

More Bear Puns

We haven't even scratched the surface of this one yet, but look out for a sprinkling of unbearably hilarious puns across the site ;)
