This tutorial explains how to automatically post your new Instagram photos to Pinterest board.
Instagram and Pinterest are both popular photo sharing websites and almost all of us use them. Instagram natively supports feature to automatically post new photos to Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, etc. Unfortunately, posting the new photos to Pinterest is not available at the moment. But you can achieve the same with IFTTT.
Using the recipe of IFTTT, you will be able to connect your Pinterest and Instagram accounts. After this, whenever a new photo is uploaded by you on your Instagram account, it will automatically post to your Pinterest account. Recipe triggers automatically and you need to connect accounts just once. Moreover, you can also add the Pinterest board name (public board only) where you want to store the Instagram photo(s).
In the screenshot above, you can see a recipe added by me which connects Pinterest and Instagram accounts.
