Hi

I've just started using this, mainly I should say that it gives you more cred if you have a button on a website (google like it!).

Anyways, you can't embed on Forum from it but it seems an excellent way to store your photos, really easy to see and manage.

You can keep them private or allow public. If you allow public, others can pin (or copy) any of your photo's into their Albums.
Likewise, if you have a hobby, you can search out others with the same interests and put their pictures into your Albums.
You can also take pictures from websites for your albums.

I only started two weeks ago and slowly putting loads of piccies in there.

Worth having a look.

You can see my Albums thus far by clicking the white on red 'P' in the sidebar or click this link.. http://pinterest.com/richardcannon/

I've looked at other peoples albums on various hobbies, you can really build up a collection if you want to go that route.

You can get a little link button for your browser. If you're on a web page and want a photo, you right click the picture and somewhere in the little window it will say 'pin it', click that then all the photos on that web page show up and you click whichever ones you want.

For personal stuff I shall do a couple of private ones.

I'm going to join it too - it seems a great way of getting inspiration if you've got hobbies/interest. Just need to find the time to get some stuff on there!

Pinterest has been a bit of a phenomenom over the last 12-18 months or so and has huge number of eyeballs and boards. Just set up some boards for my Wargames Club in Newport. Gradually dragging them kicking and screaming into the daylight of 21st century.

Need to set one up for my own businesses now. I'll check your's out as soon as can but yes loads of inspiration on there
