What's a Pin?

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:

  1. Hover over the Pin and click Pin It. Or, open up the Pin to the large view and click Pin It
  2. Choose the board for your Pin and add a description to your pin
  3. Click Pin It

 

Find a Pin from a website:

  1. Add the Pin It button to your browser
  2. Find an image on a website that you want to Pin and click the Pin It button
  3. Select the image you'd like to Pin
  4. Choose the board for your Pin and add a description
  5. Click Pin It

Or: 

  1. Click on the plus sign beside your name in the top-right corner and click Add from a website
  2. Type in the website's address
  3. Click Find Images

 

 Upload a Pin from your computer:

  1. Click on the plus sign (+) beside your name in the top-right corner and click Upload a Pin
  2. Click Choose File and find the file on your computer
  3. Choose the board for your Pin and add a description to your Pin
  4. 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.
