Where to credit the image donor?

I recently uploaded pictures on two profiles. I emailed and received permission from the Middlebury College Special Collections, Middlebury Vermont when doing so. They (she) only asked that I credit the college with the pics. Where is the best place to put the info when permission came directly to me in an email? Or am I getting "over legalistic"?

There is really no place to put the credit under the picture on the profile page. Maybe within the notes section, or sources? I am a bit uncertain.

When you upload an image the form asks for the source, that would be the place to put “Image reproduced from Special Collections, Middlebury College, Middlebury, Vermont.  Permission granted by email from Persan A/title to PersonB, August xx, 2020.”

Click on the photograph/image you uploaded. Beneath it you will see where you put your comments when you uploaded it. Click on the edit button and put the information regarding the permission. You could format it like a source citation. That is the only place I know of for you to do it so the information is directly connected to the photograph/image. You could also put the source citation for the photograph/image in your sources section of the profile for those who may not know to click on the photograph/image to find the information about the source of the photograph.

I wound up putting the credit on the public page. Someone without a Wikitree account may not see it if simply linked by the photo. Technically I think that a picture can qualify as a source as it is descriptive of a person.
