Not sure where to post this question--may I assume if there is a "Pin It" button where I am looking at a cake pic it's ok for me to pin the picture on pinterest? It's a little late now, but for me, pinterest is how I organize my favorites by category I really don't care who looks at it. Just wanted to know if I should be asking permission by the cakemaker each time prior to pinning the picture? Thanks!

i like to make sure I'm pinning it from the original source (ie not repinning someone else's pin IF THAT PIN isnt also from the original source) and I like to put the URL/original source in the comment section just in case icon_smile.gif

Cakers post here knowing there is a pin button. So I think you can go on pinning as long as when you pin you give credit and it links back to CC.

Thanks. On some pictures there is no pin button so I wondered if people could choose not to allow it. But I am not familiar much with Pinterest, however, when I use the Pin button, it automatically links to the source, so that much is a relief. Thanks for your replies!
