OT, Good morning! I posted yesterday about how to get an original to post on Pinterest. I have posted 2 recipes on my board; Recipe for a Mom! Yay! However, I have another question. Please see inside.

After clicking on "pin it" it went to my documents on my computer. I only had the photo of the soup in my documents. Will I have to put things into my documents in order to post on Pinterest or is there another way? TY

Hi Luv2cook. I have been wanting for a long time to ask this. Can you (and/or others) tell me about pinterest. I do not really understand it, what its for, etc. I obviously don't have an account there. I have gone to some buzz members recipes on pinterest. I wonder if this is something I should or would want to get. Thanks!

You can put it there if it's easier for you but otherwise there is probably a "browse" button in the pop up window that lets you choose another location on your computer. I don't have pinterest but that's how I do it everywhere else.

When I clicked on browse I ended up at "my documents".

Luv, were you able to add the pin it button to your browser bar? I don't have any clue how it got to your documents file.
Jan. 5, 2013 5:51 am
Do you have another folder where you store photos? The browse window that comes up should let you choose another folder from the left side and then subfolders as needed. Does that make sense?

Lindsay, go here and read about it. You'll like it, I have found so many useful websites and I don't have to bookmark each and everyone of them now.....

Lindsay, I'm C G on pinterest.

Got to About and in the drop down box click the pin it button. There is a video on how to do it. Once that button is there you can just hit it when you're on a website you want to pin. Thanks to Jacolyn yesterday.

I think I just installed something I shouldn't had. Ugh! I will figure it all out at some point. Thank you all!

luv2cook-If you figure out how to uninstall an item let me know. I love pinterest. I hope you don't mind if I follow you.

Thanks Sherri for the link. I read through it and think I am going to attempt it. Sounds like it could be fun! Wish me luck!

Pinterest shouldn't be that hard. They have instructions at the site for all your questions...check that out and I bet you'll have it figured out in no time! It is a fun place for sure. I used vintage Christmas art I found on Pinterest for decorating my packages this year. Fun!

TSP, I'm old! I do not understand computer stuff! I did get to the page where questions are asked. I click on question, How to add a pin and I've copied but the pasting part is where I'm confused. I do not know where to paste.
Jan. 5, 2013 7:41 am
Are you adding a pin from a website? If you are, just hit the paste button…then it will be put on to your board on Pinterest.
