Under the attribution aspect of the Creative Commons license, any use of an image from #eltpics has to be annotated with a suitable attribution. This can be put after the image, at the end of a page, blog, slideshow etc.. As people have asked about how to attribute #eltpics in blogs on worksheets etc., we thought it might be useful to set out an attribution guideline following the Creative Commons license recommendations.

So… From August 2012 the following guidelines apply to attributing #eltpics

If you use an image by, say, @ij64, the attribution should read like this: "Photo taken from http://flickr.com/eltpics by @ij64, used under a CC Attribution Non-Commercial license, http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/"

If you’re using derivative work: "Image made using a photo taken from http://flickr.com/eltpics by @ij64, used under a CC Attribution Non-Commercial license, http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/"

If you’re using more than one #eltpics image the twitter names can be listed: "Image made using photos taken from http://flickr.com/eltpics by @ij64, @sandymillin, @fionamau used under a CC Attribution Non-Commercial license, http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/"

If you use #eltpics a lot, then it may be worth keeping a copy of these attributions to hand so they can easily be copied and pasted (with relevant twitter username).
