    How and where to declare the source of images posted in an article

    I need to know where I should post the credits of the images that I attach in my articles. Up until now, I had been leaving a message about the image being self-clicked, in the 'description' box. I just realised what a waste of SEO opportunity this practice has been.

    Most of the images that I attach to my articles are self-clicked or self-sourced. They do not infringe on anyone's copyright. How do I get this message across to the editors in the resource section?

    I am aware that I can place a watermark on the images, but I also find it quite a cumbersome process. What is a simple way to deal with this issue?

    You do not need to explain that the image is self clicked. In most cases, it will be obvious that you own the photo. Only when there is a doubt, editors will ask you about the source. In such cases, there is an option "Message to Editors" which will do the purpose.

    How do you say it is a waste of SEO opportunity?
