I got powerpoint to do it. I took a picture (that my sister sent me, of her artwork) and embedded her name and the (cc) symbol. That seemed to do it.

I regularly use openly-licensed images on Flickr and from Wikimedia Commons as stock photos for my presentations. As a believer in open data and in compliance, I wanted to ensure that I handled any required attribution properly, even if the presentation was altered, so I wanted the attribution to travel with the image (rather than, say, being on a final slide). I also wanted to ensure, on the same basis as this thread started, that anyone adapting and using my presentations also showed the licensing of the images.
So I have a crude shell/Imagemagick script together with some adapted Creative Commons symbols images which puts the licence symbols and the attribution into the image file itself – an example is at http://ow.ly/nItWr
