Meanwhile over on Pinterest you have great Boards devoted to these topics.
What happens when someone clicks on an image in Pinterest?
- Since you took these yourself and uploaded them directly to Pinterest – nothing happens.
- If you pinned an image from a website – you’ll be taken to that page in that website.
