Creative commons is well known for standardizing the licencing of photos, allowing photographers to selectively give away their copyrights. Why any photographer would want to do this is beyond me, but it is a thing.
The CC does provide a standardized HTML for adding credit into a web page, but I'm wondering if there is any kind of visual standard for what a credited photo should look like.
For instance, should the credit line always be below the photo? Should it be floated to the left or right? Are their any guidelines for the size of the text relative to the image size? Are their certain words "Photo By:" or "Photo courtesy:" more preferred than others?
It seems strange to me that there is no visual standard to identify who created a photo, so I'm just wondering if there is something like this out there.
