How do I add a photo credit to a featured image?

Here's my code snippet for adding a photo credit directly under a featured image.

if ( thisismyurl_has_custom_media_field() ) {

    $credit_name = thisismyurl_get_custom_media_field( get_post_thumbnail_id( $post->ID ), 'credit_name' );
    $credit_url = thisismyurl_get_custom_media_field( get_post_thumbnail_id( $post->ID ), 'credit_url' );

    if ( empty( $credit_name ) )
        $credit_name = $credit_url;

    if ( !empty( $credit_url ) )
        $credit_text = '<a href="' . $credit_url . '" title="' . $credit_name . '">' . $credit_name . '</a>';
        $credit_text = $credit_name;

    $credit_text =  '<div class="media-credit">' . $credit_text . '</div>';

    echo $credit_text;

Note that I named my Unique ID's credit_name and credit_url in this example, and am fetching the them based on the ID returned for the Post feature image using get_post_thumbnail_id( $post->ID ).

Why does this plugin have thisismyurl_ before the function name?

Each plugin added to WordPress has the potential to conflict with the core, theme, or other plugins. To ensure this plugin adds only unique code to your website, the prefix thisismyurl_ is added to each function. thisismyurl is my personal domain, as well as my @thisismyurl alias on Twitter.
