If you hover over them you can click on them. Click on the category that says BOARDS.
You'll now see all of your Pinterest boards. Scroll until you find the board you want to pin to and then click on that board. In the top right corner you will see a GRAY PLUS SIGN. You will then see ADD SECTION and CREATE PIN. Click CREATE PIN.

You will now see your provisional schedule on the far RIGHT. Just above the schedule you'll see the option to CREATE A NEW PIN. Click on CREATE A NEW PIN. Upload your pin image from your computer and wait for your draft section to appear.
Choose the board(s) you want the pin to appear, write a slamming keyworded description, add the pin to your tribes and or smartloops, and add the correct URL at this point (a direct link to your product or blog post). This is a really important step because you want the pinner who clicks on your pin to go directly to your product or the blog post you want them to read. If you don't update the web address you'll be sending pinners to the homepage of your website and they won’t like it. They may not decide to hunt to find what they were actually looking for. Once you’ve added everything, click ADD TO QUEUE.
And that’s it my fellow pinners! 5 Ways you can add a pin to Pinterest.
