Key notes

  • From home decor to vintage clothing and everything in between, Pinterest is the go-to app for amazing pictures.
  • But what good is it to see these fantastic pics if you cannot batch download Pinterest images to your HDD?
  • Since there is no built-in option to download a Pinterest board, you can use a 3rd party Pinterest board downloader.

Pinterest is a great website to share images on, allowing users to set up boards that include an image collection. As such, it’s a visual bookmarking tool for saving pictures directly from the web. However, users are demanding a way to batch download Pinterest images.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t include an option to batch download images in order to save them to a hard drive folder. Something like this would come in handy for users with lots of photos to keep.

Nevertheless, you can still download all images from a Pinterest board with a few browser extensions and desktop software.

Pinterest has a license for the material on its site that is both non-exclusive and transferable on a global scale. This indicates that others will be able to share and store any material that is submitted on that platform.

However, this only applies to Pinterest. It does not imply that you are permitted to copy stuff from there and publish it elsewhere.

Whether you are not absolutely positive that the picture may be shared (for example, if you have permission from the owner or if it is in the public domain), you should refrain from sharing the image anywhere else on the Internet.

The protection afforded by copyright is crucial for the integrity of any original work of writing. Any kind of creative expression may fall under this category. If you have developed anything and represented it in a definite form, you immediately acquire ownership rights under copyright law.

Can you copy images from Pinterest?

You are only permitted to repin photos on Pinterest. This means that you cannot duplicate them to use them on another service/platform.

Due to the fact that you are solely responsible for everything that you publish on Pinterest, you run the risk of infringing on someone else’s intellectual property rights if the picture you’re repinning was uploaded to Pinterest without the author’s consent.

Quick Tip:

You should consider using a lightweight and fast browser like Opera One. You’ll make sure you’ll be done with the task without errors.

Plus, the Download all images extension in the Opera One add-ons shop allows you to download any image from a web page, including full Pinterest boards.
