Pre-Pin extends the capabilities of the Pinterest Pin It! bookmarklet.
The Pre-Pin menu, accessible by right clicking anywhere on a webpage, offers two options.
The first option is Pre-Pin Page. This searches the current webpage and pulls out all relevant images. This makes previously unpinnable images like background-images (often used in rotating displays) now pinnable by the Pin It! bookmarklet. It's also helpful when you want to quickly look at all images on a page, whether you're adding them to pinterest or just browsing.
The second option is Pre-Pin Image. This makes it possible to pin an individual image without leaving the page, instead of having to save it and upload it to Pinterest. It retains as much original information as possible, like a path back to the original source of the image.
There has been no attempt made to try to reverse engineer Pinterest intellectual property, and all code and functionality has been written in compliance with written terms of service as well as the spirit behind it. I believe in making community sharing a reality, while also protecting the rights of the original owners.
