I created a gallery slideshow using javascript routines.

I tried to add a button with a script, that would act as a 'pin it' button for the active image on the slideshow.

At the moment, the 'pinit' button appears when I hover over the active, however using my script, I don't know how to get a handle on the image.

Can anyone suggest a solution
Here is a link to the gallery

the pin-it image appears when you hover over the active image.

thanks

What is it you are wanting - the URL?

You could just use

$(".add-image>img").attr("src")



p.s.
Research image optimization.

Sorry Gary,
found the issue was with my attempt to open a blank window

we realized that IE does not support a name as second argument.
