I'm not a fan of pinterest. I don't believe it's a hang out for serious buyers. I think it's popular amongst teenagers, scrapbookers and amateurs that are not likely to buy anything. I've seen my images on that site, "borrowed" from other websites that have licensed the material and then re-pinned a dozen times. In those cases there's no link to the stock agency or credit to me. I'm not a saint, I don't bust my a** producing artwork just so others can enjoy it. I do it to make a little money for myself, maybe even earn a living so it's not thrilling to see it spread around the web with no reference to the owner...me. Thanks but no thanks.
Thanks! :) I like Pinterest! Another tool to promote your portfolio. And their site have a really great structure and design. Sad, that DT button doesn't add referral code. It need to be added manually, if you want to have it there.
Added you, Maigi. Egomezta and Laurasinelle, if tou decide to jump in, let me know. It can take a while to start to be followed at first, but it will grow up quickly, as there is a fuzz about it right now. Anyway it is fun to have you images pinned somwhere, and it is an inspirational place to be.
