Flickr partnering with Pinterest to today simplify the sharing of Flickr photos to Pinterest, while also ensuring photos are properly attributed to you when doing so. To this end, Flickr has added a Pinterest button in the share menu to easily “pin” photo pages, favorites, and groups.
You can now find a “Pinterest” button in the share menu to easily “pin” everything that you can share via Flickr, including photo pages, favorites, and groups. If you pin a lot, the share menu will act smartly and prioritize the Pin It button, showing it as one of the two shortcuts on the photo page.
For those who don’t want their content to be shared, can easily disable sharing in the account settings and make the Pinterest option unavailable.
With Flickr images amongst the most popular content pinned to Pinterest, we believe your Flickr photos should be properly attributed to you, regardless of where they are pinned from.
Also, starting today, every image shared from Flickr will be clearly credited with the name of the photographer, the title, and a link from Pinterest to the photo page – this will also include all Flickr photos previously shared on Pinterest.
“The attribution cannot be edited, so even repins of images will be credited and linked back, so that people can leave comments, fave your photo, or contact you directly on Flickr,” explained flickr.
“This also works automatically for any Flickr photos embedded in websites or blogs, giving you much more certainty that you’ll be credited when your Flickr photos are shared on Pinterest.”
Pinterest also added the proper attribution to all photos that have been pinned from Flickr so far.
