Image Attribution Workshop

I have uploaded the powerpoint from today’s presentation about Image attribution for reference purposes.

However, I did just want to mention the lovely new feature (ok, new for me) from wikimedia commons (thanks Mel for showing this to us!)

From desktop:

I searched for Uffizi gallery wikimedia commons on google images:

Here you get all the information you need for a nice image attribution: the title, author, source and license.

However, you can also click on the download icon and it will give you a full attribution to copy and paste! (this is going to be large as it includes the full URL. You can probably hyperlink this in a presentation).

Very cool. I also tried it on the iPad – though it still is handy, it does not give you the download option:

When you click on the “Details” icon, it takes you to the image on wikimedia commons with the full set of metadata. However, the above attribution (including the URL linking to wikimedia) is all you need!
