Pinterest is a popular photo-sharing website that lets you create virtual pin-boards and collect inspiration - easy to find great ideas and even easier to lose track of time. Whether you want to find a unique travel destination, cook up something new for dinner, or decide on the perfect shade of paint for the bathroom, you can create a board and pin ideas from all over the web, as well as repin what other people have posted.
The site’s become incredibly popular incredibly quickly; it’s actually the fastest site in history to reach 10 million unique visitors in one week! Due to its popularity it’s a great way to gain exposure as pinned photographs link back to the original source.
Pinterest are keen to give credit where credit is due and, of course, so are we. That’s why we’ve partnered up with them; to ensure that any photographs pinned from 500px will not only link back to the original source but they will be automatically displayed with the title of the photograph, and the photographer’s username. Furthermore, this information cannot be edited by the Pinterest user, and all existing pins from 500px will be automatically attributed too, meaning much more security for your images.
Not only is this another great way for you to gain exposure via 500px but, with the handy sharing button now appearing under all the images, you can join in the fun yourself. Get over to Pinterest, set up some boards, and get pinning all the awesome photographs you find on our site!
You can also follow 500px on Pinterest here, and if you fancy a peek at our dream office head to this Pinterest board. We’ve got some awesome ideas... or at least we’ve found some and created a virtual pin-board out of them :)
