    Hi,

    I have a pinterest board with items from my old shop. Some pins have 14K repins.
    I made a new shop/new brand with some of the same items, and I'd like to change the image and link of the original pins without having to just delete and create new pins, in which case I'd lose the repins, right?
    Is there a way to do that?

    Thanks

    Even tho this is ultra black hat, you here got a chance to destroy your competitors business.

    just duplicate all your competitors pins, direct them to some web 2.0 property, and then bring it to the attention of your competitor. If he or she is stupid enough, she will report you.
    Know then, that pinterest can only delete an image on all pinterest..not a specific pin. Which means, by doing that, all rightfull uses of the that pin will get removed as well.
