Shareable Images (share buttons for images): How to turn off/on


Based on our Social Media Traffic Report, Pinterest drives more traffic to sites than Twitter, LinkedIn, and Reddit combined! 

The Shareable Images feature allows site owners to automatically add Pinterest share buttons to their images. Simply mouse over the image below, and you will notice a "Pin It" button appear in the upper-left corner that allows your readers to share the image straight to Pinterest.

How to install Shareable Images

If you already use Shareaholic tools, follow these simple steps to add Shareable images (Don't have an account? Sign-up here):

  1. Sign into your Shareaholic account.
  2. Select your site from the My Sites dropdown menu at the top of the page.
  3. On the Apps page, under the 'Social Sharing' section, use the toggle button next to the Share Buttons for Images box to enable/disable the buttons.




  • An image must be at least 80x120 or 120x80 pixels for the shareable image buttons to appear.
  • Since there is no hover interaction on touch screens, the on hover shareable images buttons won't show up on smart phones and tablets.
