    So finally after a ton of trial and error, I have come up (with help from Google of course) with a Pinterest iMacros script for Firefox that allows you to pin as many images from a folder on your computer as you'd like.


    1. Download Image Downloader (Firefox Add-On)
      • Can't link to it because I'm new so just google search for it and it has a blue icon with a white downarrow
    2. Navigate to whatever page on Pinterest which has popular pins in your category (Recipes, Fashion, etc)
    3. Using the Image Downloader, download all the images you want to pin and save them into a folder in your Documents folder
    4. Once you have them all in a folder in your documents folder, copy and paste the file names into an Excel sheet with only the first column with all the file names (ex. Cell A1 should have 'b5e2063a0fc42c94667391f4a7d8e93d.jpg' in text only; Cell A2 should have another filename, and so on)
    5. Save this Excel sheet with a simple name (such as pinimages.csv) to the "Datasource" folder for iMacros
      • YOURUSERNAME/iMacros/Datasources/pinimages.csv
    6. Use the following script:
      • Code:
        VERSION BUILD=8871104 RECORDER=FXTAB T=1
        SET !ERRORIGNORE YES
        SET !DATASOURCE [COLOR=#ffff00]filenameLocatedInDatasources.csv[/COLOR]
        SET !LOOP 1
        SET !DATASOURCE_LINE {{!LOOP}}
        TAG POS=1 TYPE=BUTTON ATTR=TXT:Add<SP>Pin
        TAG POS=1 TYPE=BUTTON ATTR=TXT:Upload<SP>a<SP>Pin
        TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:FILE FORM=NAME:NoFormName ATTR=NAME:file CONTENT=/Users/USERNAME/Documents/pinimages/{{!COL1}}
        WAIT SECONDS=5
        TAG POS=1 TYPE=TEXTAREA FORM=NAME:NoFormName ATTR=ID:pinFormDescription CONTENT=[COLOR=#ffff00][I]PUT<SP>YOUR<SP>DESCRIPTION<SP>HERE (<SP> is for spaces between words)[/I][/COLOR]
        WAIT SECONDS=5
        TAG POS=1 TYPE=BUTTON FORM=NAME:NoFormName ATTR=TXT:Pin<SP>it
        WAIT SECONDS=3
        TAG POS=1 TYPE=BUTTON FORM=class:standardForm ATTR=type:submit
        WAIT SECONDS=4
    7. Navigate to the board you wish to pin your images too
    8. Set Loop to something really high (9999)
    9. Make sure it's working before you let it run
    10. Play with the WAIT SECONDS time to fit your liking, don't get banned!
    This shouldn't take much time to fill up a board with your images

    I haven't come up with a script to edit the "source" yet so you can add cloaked aff-links to CPA offers, websites, etc, but if you have one, feel free to share it!

    This is my first post, so go nice!

    I made this script on December 11, 2014 and it's working for me

    Happy Pinning!

    Thanks for the script but I'm stuck.

    I'm trying to download pics from Pinterext but when I scan the link with BID, it only shows 24-25 pic. But there there are 100+ pics.
    Any Idea to download all pics from the particular board ?
    Or any Other software to do so?

    I only use the Firefox addon as I mentioned above. You can choose to download all the images on the page, but many are not what we want, so I just go through and click the ones I want to download

    I understand that but It seems like there must be some setting or restrictions which is causing me to allow only 25 files.
    Which version of BID are you using?

    I literally just downloaded over 300 pics from a Pinterest page. Are you scrolling down far enough to pre load the images on the page before you try and download them?

    I'm not sure if I specified in the original post, but I'm using Chrome on a Macbook Pro to download the pics. I cant post the direct link to the Image Downloader extension I'm using because I'm a newer member, but just google search "image downloader" and it's the one for chrome with a blue down arrow as the icon in your toolbar.

    Although, I can't figure out how to download the images to a specific folder so I just copy and paste them to a folder from my downloads folder, watermark them, rename them with my keyword, and viola.
