Use Bing’s New Pin It Button to Pin Images to Pinterest

If you’re a Bing search user, you’ll be pleased to know that they’ve just recently added a tiny new feature to their Bing Images search results – Bing’s new Pin It button. Now you can pin images to Pinterest right from the actual image on the search results page.

Sure, you can still use the bookmarklet or an extension to pin from here, but doing this will bring up all the images on the page, and you’ll have to find the one you want. Using Bing’s new Pin It button will save you time since it’s right below the image.

Here’s how it works:

1. Perform a search on Bing Images. This can be done several ways, such as from your browser’s address bar or search bar, depending on the browser you’re using and your default search engine. You can also go to the Bing homepage or directly to Bing Images to do a search.

2. If you’re on the Bing Web results page, click on “Images” at the top so that you can see the images related to your query. Otherwise, if you’re already on the Images page, you should see your results below the search bar.

Make sure you're on the Bing Images page.

3. Click on any image to see a larger view of it and to also display the “Pin it” button. You should see the button right underneath the image – toward the right side.

You should see the Pinterest Pin It Button below the image.

4. Clicking on Pin It will pop up a Pinterest “Create a Pin” window just as it does anywhere else. You can choose a board, add/edit the description, and Pin It.

Create a new pin on Pinterest right from Bing Images.
