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 to pester you, but can you tell me why the script I'm using bombs out in IE (8,9,10)

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.
