Photo Credit Field

I think a very necessary improvement to the NING editor would be to add a field for photo credits when uploading photos to site pages. After all, we are ALL content providers to some extent.

As NING creators we are responsible for crediting photos when applicable, but in the current editing system there is no way to add a photo credit without placing it at the bottom of the article. Currently if you place a photo credit into the page under a photo, it throws off the alignment and continuity of the page layout.

Example: just published this new article on the royal couple and I would really like to have a photo credit below each photograph. Because I'm a non commercial site at this time, I'm not as concerned. But I'm looking to flip the site and I'd like to have all my bases covered. Of course, I could do all of this in Photoshop prior to uploading the picture...but what a time saver it would be to have a field in which to enter the data that would sit at the bottom of the photo in tiny type.

Frankly, I'm really surprised that this field wasn't added initially knowing how the Internet is being threatened by regulations...and I think this would be a very easy code to add. Maybe I'm wrong.
