How To Sync Pinterest with Tumblr

Besides adding a pinterest button to tumblr, you can further integrate your Pinterest account with Tumblr.

By following the tutorial below, you will sync your Pinterest account with Tumblr, by sending the board or user RSS feed to your Tumblr Blog, so each time you pin something that belongs to that category or user it will send it as a photo post to Tumblr.

How To Integrate Pinterest with Tumblr

  1. First of all, let’s locate your Pinterest Board, or Pinterest User RSS Feed URL. Follow the examples below and replace USERNAME and BOARD with the right words.


  3. Now, in order to import Pinterest RSS Feeds to Tumblr, we’ll use the following tumblr app, called RSS Importr. Remember to first log into Tumblr
  4. Once in RSS Importr Page, click on Log In, and allow the app access to your account. After that, click on “Get Started”
  5. Now, you need to enter the exact Pinterest Feed URL to import, the Tumblr blog where you want the photos sent to and post-type you want the pictures to be published in, that will obviously be, Photos.

  6. Sync Pinterest with Tumblr

  7. Remember that the import limit for RSSImportr are 100 posts per day, per account.

    “and post-type you want the pictures to be published in, that will obviously be, Photos.”
    Unfortunately that isn’t an option. Its just text or link for now.

    I’ve got a question. When I go to RSS Importr, the only post options I have are either Text or Link. Photo isn’t listed. Do you know if this feature has been removed?

    i think it doesn’t work for me.
    hours and days have passed and no picture from my pinterest ever got posted on my tumblr.

    i wanted to integrate my whole pinterest user feed so i followed option number 1 (

    this didn’t work so i burned my pinterest feed and put that also so i now have 2 feeds registered in rssimportr but still, that didn’t work.

    i can send feed to my facebook page though (using the feed link i burned with feedburner).


    Mr. Tumblr Reply:


    You are right, even though it was working at the time we wrote the tutorial, the app does not reflect your pinterest updates, but you can still perfectly add the feed to it, which is weird. We already submitted feedback to the app owner.

    The feed URLs are very useful, thank you!
