gmail to pinterestIf you like to post pictures on Pinterest and you use Gmail for your email,  you’ll want to read this.

Someone sent me a some Pin-able images and I found myself struggling to get them to Pinterest.

Here’s how I finally did it:

  1. Share to Google+ (which I usually do anyway) by hovering over the image and clicking the “Share” button that appears

Enjoy!
