Small print option?

    Wouldn't it be nice to have small print for the credits and references?

    I notice that most people have very few pictures, and I thought that maybe good pictures might make the ads less visible and are therefore not desirable, but if I would like to put in pictures anyway, I have to list the credits, and that adds too much of a tail to a hub.

    I also know that readers check a reference once in a 100 years approximately, and so that information could ne be printed really small.

    Have you considered adding the credits and references in the caption slot?  That uses small print...

      The credits are often long and not pretty: the type of license given is longish and sounds highly technical and then comes the location of the license, an internet address. And unless I am mistaken, HubPages does not allow tinyurl addresses all over the place.

    I sometimes do both - give credit in the capsule and also at the end of the Hub.  I prefer to give as much credit as possible as I am very appreciative of people's hard work.

    Often I create another capsule and entitled a section "In appeciation" or "references and citations"  Within here I prefer to add a link directly.

    I gree with Blue Parrot the full size text detracts from the subject.  Additionally, I always try to give the FTC Disclosure - IF I had a smaller font or a separate capsule designed just for the by the way I would most certainly use it on a regular basis.
