How do you give appropriate credit when using assets?

Aug 06, 2015

When you get free assets, such as images, that are licensed under CC 4.0 and free for commercial use, how do you give this credit? Where do you add this? Anyone have an example of how you do this in a project?

What do you do with images that you get off Google images that you are not sure on copyright? Or do you avoid those all together?

Copyright is different from "Right/License to use". If a picture is out there 999 times out of 1000 it is copyrighted.

Free for commercial use requires no attribution unless otherwise stated. Those will usually contain specific instructions regarding where the attribution should be contained.

Google images is generally a no-no, as the majority of images is crawled from commercial stock photo sites (usually watermarked).

Hope this helps,
