    What's the proper way to give image credit?

    I know that I can use Flicker, stck xu, or Wiki for images but how do I properly credit them?
    I'm using the "Source URL" when adding the image and...

    My question is... should the link be to the domain of the site or the actual location of the image such as www.domain.com/image.jpg as an exaple?

    It's acceptable to simply link to the main page of the website or the page where the graphic appears. So your URL should be either www.domainname.com or www.domainname.com/pagewithimage.html . By using the specific page URL, anyone viewing your hub can go directly to the page with the image and download it to use at their hub. As a general rule, you never link directly to the image URL (as you have it written) unless you get permission from the webmaster of the site.
