How to Remove the Button From Certain Images :

Two ways are there to remove the button from individual images. If you want to remove the button from an image and prevent your blog viewers from pinning the image, add the "nopin" attribute to the image.

To add the "nopin" attribute to an image in a post, compose in the HTML view of your post, and find the img src HTML markup for the image you want to "nopin". It looks like this HTML view of an image in Blogger:

Add nopin="nopin" right after your image's width attribute like below:

When you save your post, the Pin It button will disappear from that image. It also won't be pinnable through the Pinmarklet.

If you want to remove the button from an image, but still let pinmarklet users pin the image, you can directly add the data-pin-no-hover="true" attribute to your image link instead. It is similar process as for the nopin attribute, here you have to enter data-pin-no-hover="true" instead.

How to Remove the Pin It Button from Header Images :
