- hit command-D
- choose Favorites under Add this page to:
- enter Pin It in the Name box
- right-click the Pin It bookmarklet you just made and choose Edit Address
If You're Running Chrome or Firefox, Pinmarklet will Bother You to Install the Pinterest Browser Extension
- From time to time you'll see a big banner in the image grid, begging you to please install the extension.
- If you don't want to install the extension, click the "no, thanks" button to set a two-week cookie.
Why you Might Want the Extension After All
- Pinning with the extension is much better, especially if you pin a lot. You'll have free hovering Save buttons (which you can turn off in Settings) and you can right-click and pin an image without the intervening wait-for-the-grid / pick-an-image cycle.
- Pinning happens right there inline instead of in a pop-up window.
- You also get Visual Search for free. Right-click the body of the page to search a full screenshot, or choose the hovering selector button to search an individual image.
Seriously: you really, really want the new Chrome extension. Visual search! Inline pinning! Go, download, enjoy: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pinterest-save-button/gpdjojdkbbmdfjfahjcgigfpmkopogic
