How to add a pinterest button to each photo on my website

    Hi Cathy

    Pinterest pinning is part of the general social sharing button - if you have this enabled on your photos, you can allow pinning. On your site, if you show info for a given photograph (using the '<<' icon at the top right), the 'SHARE' button appears at the bottom right. I don't think it's possible to allow a Pinterest button that appears above each photo; this is something you'd need to speak to PhotoShelter about (contact feedback@photoshelter.com)

    I'd love to get my work off pinterest, why would you want that? copyright nightmare. and statistics show very little sales come from pinterest. its impossible to remove it from a sharing platform. It gets lost and watermarks and name links removed, just like Facebook. So much BS in social media. Likes don't always translate into money and clients either. sorry to be negative. Nothing is free, you pay for it in other ways.

    Lisa - you can prevent your work being Pinned by adding the following code to your site:

    <meta name="pinterest" content="nopin" />

    Enter this in the 'HTML Head code' field at http://www.photoshelter.com/mem/site/settings

    If you see your photos on Pinterest, you can get them removed by reporting them at https://www.pinterest.com/about/copyright/dmca-pin/
