  • Number of colors - multiple colors better than 2
  • Lightness - medium light better than very dark
  • Saturation - more than 50% saturated is better
  • Aspect ratio - tall images better 
  • Background - more subject and less background better
  • Texture - smooth better than rough
  • Faces - brand images without faces get more repins


That last one surprises me.  Faces usually do better.
