Correct way to give attribution for graphics?? (2 posts)

    What is the correct way to give attribution for graphics used to create the header of a theme if they came from Flickr under a creative commons license?

    This is what is suggested as an example: Photo by mollyali, available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial license. In the example "mollyali" is a clickable link to the photo on Flickr.

    Do I have to put all of this in the footer? Sometimes I make collage type headers using many graphics. The footer would be huge!

    Can I just put it in the comments of the stylesheet? Or somewhere like that?

    I want to start giving away or selling my themes or perhaps even build and flip blogs and I need to do this correctly.

    What does everyone else do about this? What is the correct legal thing to do?

    Thanks for your help!

    I normally put such things in my footer. Something like "additional graphics contributed by: ..." is fine. In your stylesheet is not good because visitors don't see that. Or you could include a comment "graphic by:.." in a post that uses it. Just make sure you are not hot-linking the graphics from the source.
