I was wondering if there is any added benefit to filling out the name of source and caption in the Photo capsule. Would these be useful for SEO or any other reason?
The caption is useful for SEO purposes. It provides an additional way to attract organic traffic via Google Images that people may look at. When they see your caption explaining the image, they may be inclined to check out your article.
The source is not necessary for CC0 license, but it’s considerate to show the source anyway. Some images require attribution, and in that case citing the source is necessary. But make sure it’s allowed for commercial use.
Thank you. I wonder what the rules are for gaming content screenshots. I know stuff streaming it's pretty straight forward. Should I be crediting them game studio or the game itself?
Generally you cannot use screenshots of copyrighted images. So check with the game license. It might mention it somewhere on the box it came in. If not, then try to contact the manufacturer to ask for permission. They might request specific attribution.

The layout for the images is corrupted making it very difficult to add attribution and captions. It occurs using both Chrome and Firefox for editing. The caption box is particularly affected - does not expand as you add content. See example below. Please fix as quickly as possible. Thanks

I just tried to correct of couple of photo attributions. When I open the capsule in edit, the photo disappears. It won't let me upload another photo either. The capsule looks strange, no icon to click to upload. Is this possibly because the links are broken and photos are no longer available? I...

Picture captions, alt tags and image attribution are a mess on HP.Why not introduce a new capsule solely for captions and attribution, entirely separate from the picture and its alt tag?When a hubber uploads a picture, tell them to add an alt tag. It should be the simplest description of the...

....or is that already the case?There's a lot of discussion that links in photo capsules are often "unrelated". Many people are going to great lengths to create separate text boxes for photo credits etc. If we could just get the "Source URL" box in the photo capsule...
