Automatic Flickr Creative Commons attribution

cc licensed flickr photo shared by dullhunk

Thank you CogDog (aka Alan Levine) for creating the Greasemonkey script that automatically generates embeddable HTML code and/or attribution text that is appropriate for a PowerPoint slide for Creative Commons photos!

If you want to try it for yourself:
1. Install the Firefox browser (if you aren't already using it)
2. Install Greasemonkey
3. Install the Flickr CC Attribution Helper script for Greasemonkey
4. Go to the Flickr Creative Commons and select a photo.
5. Copy the embed code and paste it into your blog or wiki.

Wow! That was easy! Thanks Alan.

I've since learned of another site that actually adds the attribution to the photo itself! I'll have to dig through my Delicious account and share a post about it.

Jim, I think it is Sprixi you are referring to. They are offline just now but are wonderful, so I hope back soon. They put the attribution on the photo as a watermark.
