Tools for Pinterest: Pin Search

Hi All 


Let's on continue on our quest to find tools for Pinterest.com to make this platform work for us. 


Pin Search (for Chrome browser) is the tool for today.


This nifty little tool helps you find the site of the actual picture.

The site makeuseof.com explains its use succinctly.


"Although Pinterest provides a source for every image, we sometimes want to know more. Where else does this image appear? Where can we find similar images? The best answers to these questions can be found on Google Images, and this is where Pin Search for Chrome comes in handy.

After installing the extension, a new Search button will appear every time you hover over a Pinterest Image. Clicking the search button will perform a Google Image search for the image, and open a new tab with the results, which include the image’s original size, other sizes it’s available in, where it appears and visually similar images. This is a great way to turn Pinterest into an even wider discovery tool for images."

This is great if you see an item you want to purchase and the home site has gotten "lost" in the pinning.

Go give Pin Search a spin and come back and share in the comments section.
