    Photo use has always been a little loose at this site - I wish I could say I've been 100% consistent - but it's especially important with these photo-heavy diaries that some attribution is given.

    To the diarist: Creative Commons or not, you still have to give attribution in order to comply with Fair Use.  Someone did take these photos, after all.

      with your comments and I think more and more the site is clearing up this ubiquitous problem. If not using my own or other agreement-types of photos, I always embed those names in the photos (if Creative Commons) and that DOES give credit to the folks who take the shots. Just scroll over the picture and copy the image and voila. Anyway, thanks for posting the comment. I have been working with a site coordinator on the matter and his clarity on the subject speaks volumes (as does yours).

      if ever -- post photos in a diary, I'm amazingly confused about what the appropriate way to handle all this is.

        and when using Creative Commons photos, those that are not used for commercial use, embedding the name source is gud enuf. I believe the site administrator's are also working on a universal agreement, which, of course, should be in effect (though it's plainly not) and hang on for the ride. I hear from others that it's something all picture-posters, as it were, should be doing. Of course, that's not the case then, is it? Thanks for posting your comment on the matter.
