Pinterest is a social media tool that allows you to bookmark content around the web in a visually pleasing arrangement. In this course, author Justin Seeley illustrates the basics of setting up and managing a Pinterest account and explores ideas for finding inspiration. Fill out your profile, add friends, and start pinning. Discover how to share activity on Facebook and Twitter, add your own image and video pins, and plan for activities like a wedding or vacation. The course also covers pinning on the go with the iOS and Android apps.
Another great way to add content to Pinterest is to use the Upload feature. This means that you have a photograph on your hard drive somewhere that you would like to upload as a pin to Pinterest. In order to do this, you are going to find the Add button in the top-right corner and instead of Add a Pin, you're going to choose Upload a Pin. That's going to take you to the Upload a Pin dialog box where you can then choose a file. On my desktop I have a set of assets and some photos, and I have one called vacation, and so in here I can find various things about a vacation that I want to take.
And so, let's say that I find this one to be interesting. I'll hit Open. It uploads it. I can set it to one of my existing boards or create a new one, so in this one I'll choose Vacation Ideas, hit Create. Describe your pin. This place is awesome... we should visit. Then all I have to do is pin it. The photo is uploaded and the description comes in right there. Any time you need to upload a pin, just simply click Add, Upload, choose your file, locate the file on your hard drive, then hit Open, give it a quick description, and click Pin It.
So whether it's photos that you've taken or just photos that you've found and saved to your computer, this is a great way to get all that information up into a place where it can be aggregated together with other ideas, so that you can collaborate with others or simply use it as a way to kick start your imagination.
