I Just Learned Something New About Pinterest
I was trying to pin Padstow by & Fractal using the pin-it button on my browser onto my Pinterest Favortites from Persona Paper board. I noticed it was going on with only “mine,” which must be a default, in the description. So I pasted the name of the article, Padstow , followed by the first part of the article, so that it looked like this: Padstow - A once quiet little, fishing-port in Cornwall. I forgot to unselect it.
Then I thought I'd also put another of the photos from the post on my Places I'd Like to Go board. So I clicked the pin-it button again to display the photos, and guess what! All the photos now had the selected text on them. I never realized before that would happen. That means I could select some of the text I wanted to display with photos from a page before hitting the pin-it button and it would show on all of them. I tried it again by selecting the title on my Seasonal Contrasts of a Crooked Oak . When I clicked the pin-it button, sure enough. The title showed in the descriptions of all the photos.
This is very handy for pinning different photos from the same post to different boards without having to type in a new description every time. Just leave the text you want selected. Thought I'd pass this discovery on, since it was something I thought others might not know either.
