Photographer Credit

  1. Where do I add the photographer's credit? Is there a space so the information is smaller than the post text? Thank you.

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

  3. I do have my blog through wordpress.com. I guess my reason for posting is because I can't figure out how to include the photographer's credit without it being in the actual copy. Thanks!

  4. Is there terms of use for allowing your to use the image in question? If there are then you can simply create a text link.

    This is the guide for creating links in posts and pages: http://en.support.wordpress.com/links/
    This is the general link model:
    <a href="URL HERE">Highlighted anchor text here</a>
    This is the visual result it's not actually linked here in the forum.
    Highlighted anchor text here

    1. Enter the anchor text you want to link to first such as "image credit".
    2. Then use your mouse to highlight that anchor text. (If you don't highlight the anchor text the chain icon will remain grayed out and not be useable.)
    3. Next click the chain icon in the editor and proceed to create the link after you tick the box for the link to open in a new window.

  5. If you do not have specific written permission under terms of use to use any image you did not take yourself and do not hold copyright to, then know copyright law applies to digital media in cyberspace, just as it applies to print media offline.

    The vast majority of images on the internet and in Google's image cache are under copyright and cannot be used without the owner's permission. That's why Google posts a copyright warning: "Website for this image. Images may be subject to copyright." You have to check to see if you can use any image and under what conditions you can use it assuming it can be used at all.

  6. I do have rights. I was hoping I could just add a photo credit in a smaller font under the photo like in print material.

  7. Please post the URL starting with http:// for the blog.
