Gina at Oaxacaborn created this amazing Infographic that we just had to share.

Have you ever pinned or repinned something that wasn’t properly linked back to the original source? Come on, admit it. We all have. Never fear, there is a super simple way to find the origional source using Google Image Search.

Here’s how:

  1. In Pinterest, right click on the photo of the pin. Select “Copy Photo URL”.
  2. In Google Images, click on the cute little camera icon.
  3. Paste the photo URL and click “search”.
  4. Find the original source from the results.

I have had to do this numerous times and it always works perfectly.

How about you?  Have you used this tip?  Do you have any other Pinterest tips or tricks to share?  Let us know!
