Using Images From Wikimedia Commons In Hubs

    I find that some images need a full copy of the GFDL to be attached to the image being used.
    I would like to know from hubbers how this is done.

      I follow the guidelines set forth in this instructional hub. I think the way it is presented covers what you have asked under the sub-title "What Correct Image Attribution Looks Like"

        Thanks for the link Dale. I did read this before but it does not answer my question which is - I'm using images from Wikimedia commons that have either a CC license attached to them for : one - commercial use or two - a public domain image.
        However even within these limitations and licenses some images require that a full copy of the GFDL be attached when using these specific images.
        It is these images whose mode of incorporation of their GFDL license is what I'm asking about.

          I found that just a waste of time, that's why I used morguefules and flickr. But, now I found pixabay and I guess it's the best - no need of attribution at all.

                Thank you, lobobrandon! I didn't know about either Pixabay or Morguefile.
