Photo credits on live blog

When 4thebirds... features a live blog, we have the ability to post some photos and video, as well as mini-podcasts.

When we show photos, look for the photo credit either before or after the photo on the posts. The live blogging format does not have a feature whereby a photo credit can be superimposed on the photo or along with the photo (or video), but we feel it is important to provide photo credits where the photographer (or videographer) has displayed an original Creative Commons license requiring the credit.

In other words, if these photographers are nice enough to permit usage of their photos under certain circumstances, we as bloggers should abide by those rules the best way we can.

We wish to go through these extra steps because of some of the interesting and outstanding photography being submitted for display.
