Pinterest Pinning Success

I'm thrilled that I finally figured out how to again allow the pinning of recipe photos from my blog onto Pinterest. I've spent HOURS (more like days) over the past few months trying to fix this and it finally seems to be working, again.

Note: Each individual Photo to be pinned must be set as Public. I have over 1,500 photos on flickr so even though I will try to get at least one photo from each of the recipes on my blog changed over it will take me awhile & I will probably miss some.

If you run into a post you want to pin & you can't let me know in the post comment & I will try to go in & get that photo set to public the next time I'm on blogger.

I'm listing the settings I changed in case others are trying to figure this out & in case I need to make changes again - If this doesn't work for you there may be additional settings that need to be changed - the nuances of Flickr are a bit overwhelming to me. Be certain you understand the repercussions of changing any setting before you do it. I'm only reporting what I changed I'm not qualified to explain Flickr settings.

It seems the settings in question were:

1) Under Account/ Privacy & Permissions / Hide Your Stuff From Public Searches - (uncheck) Hide your photos from searches on 3rd party sites that use the Api...

2) Under Account/ Privacy & Permissions / Allow others to share your stuff / (check) Yes, that would be lovely.

3) Each Photo that will be allowed to be pinned must have its owner settings set to / Anyone can see this photo

Sorry for any inconvenience caused by not being able to pin. I had almost given up blogging over this issue because with a recipe site,    I understand that posts NEED to be pinable!
