Pinning hub articles to Pinterest?

    I mean the title of our article and an image from the article. I just joined, and don't have a clear understanding of the process.  How does this work?

      What exactly is the question?

      Yes, you can pin hubs. Yes, the title should auto generate. No, random images should not be pinned as this breeches copyright. Yes, you can edit a "changes allowed" image with your title to maximize traffic. smile

        What is the easiest way to learn the procedure?. I read your article about making an image. The instructions on Pinterest are difficult to follow. I will look for some hubs, and I think there may be a blog about it. Any other help would be appreciated. I have a board on there. Are you able to look at it for me? Thanks WryLilt.

          I have a picture on my computer that I want to be on my board with a HP article. How do I get the picture uploaded and the hub url on there?

            On pinterest, click on add a pin. It will give you the option of uploading a picture. After you have pinned the picture, go into the pin and edit it. You can then input a URL.

            Or the simple way - upload the image to a photo capsule on the hub, then use the "pin" button on the hub. It will automatically link to the hub AND anyone else who visits the hub can also pin it.

      I just use the pin button myself either on the page or on my browser. Either will post the photo as well as a link that rides behind the photo should anyone click on it.  If that "pin" is shared, the link will follow and spread far and wide the more it is shared on Pinterest.

      @all Success at my first Pinterest task. Yayyy. I had trouble getting my photos to take, but I changed to Firefox, and it worked. Thanks so much for all your help. What would we do without the help of others on the site.?

    If someone clicks on a pin they will expect to see that picture on the website.  So I would suggest putting the picture on the hub.

      Do you mean the way that WryLilt explained it? Otherwise, she said you can't use the same picture on both as it is duplicate material.
