Not really a CC subject, but close enough :-)

1. You can add a link to the CC licence by pasting the text below into your web site, :

<a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/"><img alt="Creative Commons License" style="border-width:0" src="http://i.creativecommons.org/l/by/3.0/88x31.png" /></a><br />This work is licensed under a <a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/">Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License</a>.

or as described here:

2. You can use EXIF ot IPTC fields to embed copyright & licence info into an image, providing your image format supports these tags. This article describes some ways to do this:
EXIF tag 33432 is intended to store a text string containing both photographer & editor copyright statements. 

For one list of EXIF tags, see here:

Note that the EXIF tags are primarily intended to describe the image itself, the IPTC tags add more tags to add other info, such as licence & attribution.

For an example of some of the IPTC (XMP) fields, see here:

3. Trickier. You need to build your website so that the image is provided to the user on screen in some code which does NOT include the URL of the image. Some simpler approaches prevent users from clicking on an image to "save as" but pressing CTRL-U (view source) still lists the image URL for users to download. Nothing stops users from taking a screen cap to make a low res copy.

Hi Raniere

Thanks for replying and your interest in helping me is much appreciated. I
am new to CC, and so I am exploring its benefits or otherwise.

I have already filled in / completed the metadata for most of my pics.

My problem is that CC gives me a code snippet to add to my site. And my
question(s) are:

1. do I add the code to a page on my site, or;
2. do I add the code onto a picture, and
3. how do I ensure that people only link to my pictures and not download

I hope you can answer my questions and look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards
Harold Nuttall

Did you mean the XMP metadata? AFAIK, only some format/extensions support
Which one do you are using?
