    This is a very simple question, but not one which I can easily find the answer to so I thought I would check here.  If I wish to add a photo which is covered by a share and share alike creative commons licence how to I go about doing this?  Is it ok to put in the caption 'Photo of the clouds taken by Mr H. Smith' or would I need to put this and then a link back to the original location or creative commons licence?  As I say, I have tried looking but have been unable to.

          Seems to me the safest and nicest way would be to include a link - but the CC license (below) states that each author has delineated terms that you should check for the most correct answer
