Sourcing Sourceless Pins

We’ve all had it happen. We find a great image on Pinterest, and wanting to know more about the post and where it came from, we click on the image. Suddenly, we find ourselves in a big annoying wormhole of user-uploaded or unattributed images that just keep linking back to the original Pinterest pin or the homepage of a giant blog. Luckily, there’s a quick n’ easy solution that works more often than not and allows you to keep track of your inspiration better and give credit where credit is due!

Here’s how it works:
