YUP. THAT’S RIGHT.

You’ve taken some great shots for your lovingly curated IG account…now use them for Pins!

Now, I know what you’re thinking…ugh. Does this mean I have to write a new blog post for each picture and then repin them? NOPE.

Here is how to auto-Pin an Instagram photo onto your board:

  • Sign up for an account at www.ifttt.com
  • Make sure you choose this “recipe” created by Pinterest because there are several to choose from, and they do things differently.
  • Go to Pinterest. Create a board on Pinterest for your IG photos. I called mine: My Instagram | www.lanapattinson.com
  • Copy the board name, and paste it into the IFTTT box
  • Here’s what your ‘recipe’ will look like. Leave every other text box alone! This “recipe” will link directly to your Instagram post.
