Lately I’ve been wanting to add more of the beautiful images I see on Instagram to Pinterest. I have boards for Still Life, Floral Inspiration, Nature, and others that need some new images, but I always feel like I see the SAME things over and over again on my Pinterest feed.
I am usually on my iPad or iPhone when I’m looking at Instagram, and that’s usually when I want to Pin too.
I suppose I could just take a screen shot and then put the image on Pinterest, but it doesn’t give the artist any credit. This way it will link back to the artists' Instagram account and hey, if you like it too, you might want to follow that artist, and I’m pretty sure they’d like that.
I imagine there are other ways to do this, and it’s not how you do it on the computer, but here’s how I do it… Bear with me, it SEEMS like it’s a lot, but it’s really easy once you get the steps.
Go to Instagram > Your profile > and click on the Gear ⚙
Go to ‘Posts you’ve Liked’ > This brings up the grid of all your favorites. Choose the image you want to Pin > Click on the three dots in the top right corner > choose ‘Copy Share URL’ That saves the URL to your clipboard.
Now navigate to Pinterest.
Go to your profile 👤, at the top right, above your picture is a ➕, click it, and choose ‘copied link’. this brings up images associated with that URL.
Choose the image you want and then pick the board.
I do this quickly on my iPad or iPhone by double clicking the home button to switch between apps. It may seem like a lot of steps, but once you know them, it's really pretty fast.
My super talented friend Kim Klassen has made a video to show you how easy it is! See it HERE.
