A Pin is an image or video you add to Pinterest that leads back to the site where it was found. You can Pin anything you find on Pinterest or around the web.
How to Pin
A Pin is an image or video you add to Pinterest. You can add a Pin from a website using the Pin It button or from the site's URL, or you can upload an image right from your computer. All Pins should link back to their original source.
Pin things you find on Pinterest:
Hover over the Pin and click Pin It. Or, open up the Pin to the large view and click Pin It
Choose the board for your Pin and add a description to your pin
Find an image on a website that you want to Pin and click the Pin It button
Select the image you'd like to Pin
Choose the board for your Pin and add a description
Click Pin It
Click on the plus sign beside your name in the top-right corner and click Add from a website
Type in the website's address
Click Find Images
Upload a Pin from your computer:
Click on the plus sign (+) beside your name in the top-right corner and click Upload a Pin
Click Choose File and find the file on your computer
Choose the board for your Pin and add a description to your Pin
Click Pin It
Note: You can only add JPG, PNG, and GIF image files. You can upload a high resolution image, but you'll notice a change in quality once you upload the file—we don't display high resolution images on Pinterest.
What's a like?
Liking a Pin adds the Pin to your profile’s likes section rather than a specific board.
To like a Pin, hover over the Pin and click on the heart icon in the top right corner.
