    I downloaded that picture pack from here (images that will blow up pinterest/tumblr).
    Here's my plan:
    Install a new directory in wordpress, upload all those pics and auto schedule them as posts. The posts will be then posted on tumblr, stumbleupon and pinterest automatically via a plugin and IFTTT.

    The only thing that's worrying me is Google. Will this bring penalties to my site considering that the pictures aren't original?
    I'm also thinking of hiding it from Google via robots.txt.

    So what do you guys think I should do?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Also, my main goal for this is so that my tumblr will have more than 300 pics in cue, it will also help bring traffic into my site and I plan on using adsense.

    I don't think so, but not sure.

    Why do you care about google if you will be getting your traffic from tumblr and pinterest?

    Delete the metadata out of the pictures, change the file names and Google won't know they're duplicates. There are programs that can do this or you can do it yourself with Gimp or Photoshop.

    It's not that. It's the fact that the pictures aren't my own. It's just a collection of scraped pictures and isn't that non-unique content?

    Well that answered a question thanks! Will look into it.

    Also in terms of adsense, is having a page full of pictures safe for adsense?
