I made a Pinterest pin in Canva and I use the publish button to put it on my Pinterest board, but there is not a link to my website page. I must be missing something!

Heidi is right.

- You use Canva to create your pinterest image.
- You create a pin in pinterest, upload your image and add your link there.

Yes, I had to go in and delete the ones published from Canva and then download them to my computer and redo the pin on Pinterest. Why do they have a publish to Pinterest if there is not a way to add a link? I still think we are missing something.

I will need to check the publish to Pinterest. I think that is a paid feature. I am using the free version.

Yes, you can publish the image to Pinterest.

- connect to your Pinterest account

- write pin description (your link included)
- publish

Hey, Karen!

I literally just pinned a Canva image to Pinterest. When you click on the "+" button to create a pin, you should be directed to do a few things - add an image, title, description, and website link. If not, I'm unsure how you're adding your pins. Maybe just an oversight? Check it out again and let me know - there really should be a clear place to insert the URL for your visitors!! :)

Let's figure it out - we'll get it done!

I just reread your question -- I'm guessing you tried to link directly from Canva? I've never done this. I always save my image and then go to Pinterest to manually add it .. I hope that helps!

It seems like I've tried to do just what you're doing and I didn't like the outcome. Hence, I just go directly to Pinterest (or Twitter) to add my images and links.

I hope that helps!

Yes, I was doing it from Canva. I like how easy it was but it isn't creating a link. I thought maybe I was missing something because why would you just pin a picture without it going anywhere? I have tried editing on Pinterest too and still did not find a place for a link. Maybe there is a place on Canva?! I will go play around there for awhile. Thank you for your help!
