    I was thinking to dive into different niches in Pinterest.

    I thought if I would go to DIY niche and find articles of it. I would re-write them, but I don't know about the pictures.

    How does one actually work in Pinterest with fashion, DIY or recipes without actually getting the items to take the photos with?

    I tried sending emails to the the DIY niche website owners asking if I can use their content with a link back. As that was the only thing that came to mind including actually getting the items and taking the photos myself.

    You're gonna want your own original pics. Pinterest is protecting content makers thru their algo. They know who pinned the image first and will change your links to the original site. I'm not sure how it's triggered. My guess is that one factor is after enough complaints. For food, you can easily make your own images by buying from your local restaurant and taking pics before eating. Then rewrite the recipes for posting. For other niches, just be creative. Making your own infographic seems to do well, too.

    Home Page:
    Pinterest ca do a visual research, in the same way google does reverse image searching (or how is called).

    If you copy an Image and want to repin it, you can mirror reverse and thus make the algo thin this is a brand new image.

    Yes, this way I can avoid pinterest changing the link. But in the long run when I have 100 articles with changed images posted to pinterest the original authors would make complains.

    I'm now trying to figure out how to get content for my website with images to post into pinterest. Hiring bloggers would be too expensive for now. Fiverr haves some services, but I doubt their quality.

    Guys...please don't start any myth-making. We got enough myths for instagram and google to let a million people fail with their efforts over and over again.

    You got two ways to pinterest: producing outstanding content and the chinese way.

    you seem to want to do the later approach. So why not steal the pictures and then edit the pinterest image with a nice call to action.

    Which one you think is a myth? Pinterest changing links or bloggers complaining. I don't know about changing the part link , but there is no way I'm stealing pictures in Pinterest without permission. That's madness. You can't edit a picture of a girl in a dress without her noticing it's not her (with cost/benefit work for the image).
