How to automatically add in a caption for Pinterest Photos

I am sure this is no secret, but I have found many people still don’t do it. When I am surfing the Internet or even on Pinterest and come across something worth “pinning”, I don’t always have the patience to type in what it is, in the comment area.

I usually just highlight the wording I want like this, then hit “Pin It”.

I have found an even easier way though!

When you upload your photo on to your blog, simply label the photo with what you would want the pin to say. After the “pinner” clicks which photo they want to pin, the wording will automatically be in the comment box.

Here is an example (Just click to photo to see it bigger!):

When uploading a photo change the TITLE of the photo to what you want it to say for Pinterest.

Notice when I hoover over the photo, you can see the text. 

After hitting my “Pin It” button and choosing the bottom photo,
my create pin box popped up JUST LIKE THAT!

Just a little Pinterest tip I have learned that saves everyone some time!
