I am not seeing a place for photo credit on the photo capsule. I looked at this forum, but it is over 6 months old: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/31024
Has there been any changes. On Suite 101, you have a place to put the link. Is this not possible? So, how do we give credit? Even if it is commercial or on Flickr, I still like to give credit. Plus, it looks silly to have a website under the photo, I think. Is there a hover option or anything? What am I missing?
No, there isn't a place to give credit under the photo capsule. You can use a caption but it's not a hyperlink, and for Creative Commons you should make the link live, so the caption's not really suitable.
I suspect the reason they don't make the caption live is that some people would try to use a photo/link combination to place affiliate links.
I always put my photo credits at the end of the Hub, before the comments. You could put a text or link capsule under the photo if you prefer.
I'm assuming you know you can't use just any old photo from Flickr, only the ones you find using the Advanced Search and tick "creative commons" and "for commercial use". Then you must credit the photographer, preferably with a hyperlink to their photostream.
I wonder if perhaps you could use the space allotted for a caption to serve that purpose? I did that with a couple of public domain photos I used...
Use a Text Capsule.
If you've aligned your photo capsule to the right, just stick a Text Capsule underneath it. Tuck it up under there, and put in the copyright details and hyperlink the photographers name.
Thanks all for the response! I guess I will look for commercial use only!

I'd love to see a photo credit line in the photo capsule. It would be in addition to the caption and would be a hyperlink. If you used it, you'd get "photo by [photographer's link]:" under the photo.A large proportion of Hubbers use Creative Commons photos and this would...

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

Sorry, folks--this is getting old for me, too.Ok, today's problem is with my first photo on my current in-progress hub,(actually a sketch I did). There are internal captions within the sketch, and no matter how much I tried to 'stretch' the text capsule with extra words, (and yes, added...

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...

I tried to place a photo capsule to the right of a text capsule.I couldn't find any instructions in the FAQ or a hub that addressed this matter. So I started clicking various up and down arrows and shift right arrows and ended up with a plate of scrambled eggs. I had text boxes out of order, two...

I can upload an image but then I can´t see it. Is it only me or does everyone have the same problem right now?
