How Attribution Works

You will find that some images will have a license that requires attribution. A good example of this is the Creative Commons BY License

The license basically means:

Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.

The plugin does this automatically for you in 2 ways:

  1. Images saved to your site will have the appropriate credits in the image's caption.
  2. When you use an image as a featured image, the credits get appended into your page/post's content.

The attribution is formatted using the Best practices for attribution as recommended by creativecommons.org
