Here Comes the Sun: How to Prevent Your Photos from Being Pinned on Pinterest


To Prevent an Your Photos from being Pinned to Pinterest

Add this bit of code into the html of the image that you don’t want pinned:    no pin =”no-pin”.  You will need to add it right before the closing bracket of your image like so:     no pin =”no-pin”/>
In WordPress, you can do this by clicking the “text” tab while in the editor. Then scroll to where your image html is and add this code.
After adding this code, your image will not pop up as an option to pin when a reader hits the “pin it” button. And while we’re on the topic of pinning, please always pin from the original source so correct credit is given.
