Attribution / Credit Link
Attribution refers to the public credit used to identify the photographer or creator of an image, video, audio or creative commons piece. Credit link provides the same identifier as attribution but provides a link to a webpage or digital source of the artist or creator. Free stock photos and creative common photos (audio, video or illustration as well) require that if used need to add either the attribution or credit link as a stimulation for using the photo. Stock photos which are royalty free photos do not carry this same stipulation.
