Thanks for checking out my preferred attribution methods!
I've put this short "HowTo" together because there's so much confusion around attributing credit for creative commons works. I'm not too fussed exactly HOW you attribute my work so long as you do but here's some guidelines to take away the guess work.
You do not need to attribute my work on openclipart as it is in the public domain - but if you want to you can.
However most of my work on Flickr is licensed under the Creative Commons, if it isn't, and you want to use it, please contact me. I may be able to relicense it for you unless it contains people who have not given permission to have their image used under a creative commons license.

I'd appreciate a link back to the image and a link back to this blog. Link the image itself directly back to the source on Flickr, openclipart or wikimedia commons and link the words kattekrab or Donna Benjamin back to this blog here http://kattekrab.net
Online just do this:
