How to Pin on Pinterest?

Branding on Pinterest always goes in hand-in-hand with the way you pin. You could create a niche board or just pin randomly on your Pinterest profile. Nevertheless, there are several direct implications to any pinning method that you employ.

Well, this is the basic steps to guide you on how to pin something by yourself on Pinterest, how to pin from a website and how to pin someone else’s pin.

1.   Pin Yourself

Log in to your Pinterest account and hit the ‘+’ icon on the left side of the page indicating add your pins.

Clicking on it will give you options such as upload a pin and pin from a website. To add images from your computer just click on upload a pin.

You will be directed to choose the file from your computer to upload. As soon as you select the image, a thumbnail format of the same will reappear.

Just select the board you want to choose the image or create a different board by clicking on ‘Create a board’. Add a description below the image thumbnail and click on save it. Your image will be pinned in few clicks!!!

2.   Pin from a website

I will prefer to my readers to install & use ‘Pin it’ or ‘Save it’ button on your bookmarks bar. After adding the save button, open the image on the website you want to pin.


Just click on the ‘Pin it’ button on your bookmark page and all the available images will appear on your screen. From those, select the one you want to post. This will redirect you to the ‘pin boards’ drop down menu in a new window. Choose the relevant board, fill in the description and click on pin it button.

Also, Pinterest will link back the image to the original website automatically.

Although this is a bit direct way, Pinterest also provides you another way to Pin from another website.

Alternate Way

  • Open the image on website you want to pin
  • Copy the URL
  • Open Pinterest Page
  • Log in
  • Click on ‘+’ button and then click on ‘Pin from a website’
  • Paste the URL

After this a fresh new window will open, displaying a number of options for the link. Choose your image, select the board and click on save it. Your pin is posted right away!!

3.   How to Repin

This is the simplest one.

Just log in to your Pinterest Account and stay on the home page. Go through all the pictures available on the home page and select the one you wish to repin.


Click on the save button on the left top corner and add the description.

You will also get an option to choose from your own boards.

Select the most relevant board for it.

You can simply add or edit the description as per your liking.

After this, just click on save and you are good to go!!!
