For example, you can create a recipe to take any image you add to your Facebook profile and pin it to one of your Pinterest boards. An alternative is to create a recipe that instantly shares new pins or pins you like to other social media networks such as Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
You should use IFTTT because it has more than 200 channels. Look for those that are image-centric to see which ones you can combine with some smart automations for Pinterest.

The Pinterest app allows you to conveniently access your accounts on the go, allowing you to add images or share photos to your Pinterest boards from anywhere at any time. It is available for iOS and Android devices.
With the Pinterest app, you don’t have to wait until you get back to your computer to pin something you find online or see in real life.
