How to Give Credit for Images

How to Give Credit for Images

Ah, a perfect combination of two things that I love: well-designed flowcharts and proper image crediting! The internet may seem like a free-for-all, but posting uncredited images can land you in a legal scuffle (not to mention that it's bad manners). Most of my article images are either public domain (found through Wikimedia Commons) or stuff that I've made myself. Otherwise, I add credit, just like I'm about to do right now.

Really beautiful flowchart.

I use a Mac app for this process call Viewfinder. It searches CC images off Flickr, and the best part: once you've downloaded, you can easily copy the attribution with one click (hard to explain unless you use it). It costs about $15, but I use it all the time, so it has been well worth it.
