#3 Once in your account go to the upper right corner there are 4 round icons go to the 2nd RED one with the "+", hover mouse over it and a drop down will appear, use the "Upload Image" one and upload your picture, choose your picture from your computor and let it up load it will go from 100% to the JPG name hot the red "Continue" button at bottom right and it will prompt you to pic and place to post your pic, go to the bottom and it will say "+ Create Board" and name it (ex: Model Cars) and drop your picture in it. (still Free) wait a few second and refresh your screen and you will see the ;atest pic you put up...now...click on the pic and it will get bigger, then right click your mouse on the picture and choose "Copy Image" and it will be captured, come back here (scale auto) and simply hit past dropping it into the body of the text you are writing (ex: VV)

A word of caution:

If deciding to use a social website to post your photos on, there are several things you really need to consider. One of the first, and IMO most important, things that always pops right up to me is the fact that nearly every single free photo hosting site flat out states is that by signing up you, “grant them and their third party users a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide license to use, store, display, reproduce, save, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute your images”. In other words, the moment you upload your photo to their site, you have relinquished control of your own photos. When you read and think about what that really means, it’s kind of scary. They have the right to take your photo, modify it in any way they seem fit, then give or sell it to anyone they want for any reason. In addition to that, and clearly stated on Pinterest’s site, “Copies of content shared with others may remain even after you delete the content from your account.” Yep, that’s right. Even if you delete every photo you uploaded to their site and close the account, they and anyone else can continue to use your photos for any reason they want.

The next thing to consider is that they always reserve the right to, “terminate or suspend this license at any time, with or without cause or notice to you.” Meaning that any time they decide to do it, they simply shut down the service to you. Every link you have made will no longer work and it will be exactly the same as what Photobucket just did. They could very well demand a fee like Photobucket did and if you decide to NOT pay the fee, all your photos are lost.

I noticed a really big flag on Pinterest’s site. It states, “Some of our Products may be software that is downloaded to your computer, phone, tablet, or other device. You agree that we may automatically upgrade those Products, and these Terms will apply to such upgrades.” Actually two big flags. First, I don’t want ANY software downloaded to my computer simply to post photos on a hosting site. Secondly, there is NO WAY I would agree to allow somebody else to “automatically upgrade” anything on my computer. By agreeing to that you authorize an outside party to do as they wish to software on your computer, and without even bothering to notify you.

Free is good, but free that comes with the type of risk that exists with free photo hosting sites isn’t really free. Is it? There are dozens of sites on the ‘Net that offer hosting service for VERY reasonable fees. A year’s worth of hosting on these sites runs from around $20 per year to $50 per year. So a secure hosting solution costs the same as one or two kits. To me, that’s extremely reasonable.

Well said Steve, think you hit the nail on the head here. Can't get too much that's "GOOD" for free, there's always fine print to think about. Bill

For many of you who have facebook accounts and post your pics there it works the same way right click on the pic and "Copy Image" and then paste it where you want

It pays to actually read the terms of service when signing up for something.  I do!  You really don't want to agree to something that you don't want, ie- unwanted software, downloads, apps, hidden fees, etc.   In the future, if a photohosting site wants to charge me for their service, I will consider those charges versus what I really want.  If the charge outweighs the purpose, I will not continue with that service and will take business and photos elsewhere.  Having something free online like a photohosting site will eventually come to an end and we will all have to pay.  I have been leary of Pinterest for a long time and I have chosen to stay away from it.
