Did you mention some tools to use to add in attribution info onto images? Where can I find those?

The original, unwatermarked images could also be archived elsewhere. People who strip the attribution out of thoughtlessness or laziness would not bother to go into the archive and download the original image. People who are conscientious enough to source the original image are also likely conscientious enough to attribute correctly after doing so.

the visual appeal of open-licensed works.
