Pin images from the web to Pinterest

How to add a pin it button from Pinterest to your computer
I'll admit it, I didn't jump on the Pinterest bandwagon right away. I wasn't even sure how to pronounce it (pine-terest? pint-erest). What did this even mean?

But once I did join the throngs of people pinning fashion, recipes, crafts and diy projects, I was hooked.

It occurred to me, the day after Pinterest Nutella cookies saved the potluck, that some people may not know how to pin things they see online to their Pinterest boards.

It's easy enough to look through Pinterest boards and "repin" something, but what if you're looking through new arrivals on Anthropologie and see something you'll be the 1st to pin? Let me show you. It's incredibly simple.

How to pin images from the web on your desktop computer to your Pinterest boards:

▶First, go to Pinterest and add a "Pin It" button right to your bookmarks bar.
