Now go to Settings > JQuery Pin It Button for Images.
In the Image Selector area, you will need to add which elements should have the "Pin it" button.
If you add the selector img:not(.flo-header__logo-image), this means that all of your images will have the button, excepting your logo.
Select the pages on which the "Pin it" button should be shown
By default, you'll have these pages added: [front],[home],[single],[page],[archive],[search],[category], [post_type]

- Choose margins, that is how far from the edge of the image you want the icon to show
