To legally reuse a CC image from Flickr, you must attribute properly the source and license, as explained on this blog: http://librarianbyday.net/2009/09/28/how-to-attribute-a-creative-commons-photo-from-flickr/ Another question about how to properly attribute was answered https://webapps.stackexchange.com/a/47595/19350
Proper attribution involves many steps of linking info back to the source. The relative complexity of attribution seems to dissuade people from properly doing this (they will tend to just copy/paste the image and be done with it).
Is there a tool or place on Flickr where I can copy/paste the attribution to a CC image such that I can simplify this process? I'm looking for a "Copy image with attribution" feature, that when you then paste, supplies all the information in various formats.
Note that when I copy text from my Kindle reader on PC, the text will be pasted with a reference to the book and location (relative within). It's a "smart" copy/paste that sort-of does what I'm asking. Here's an example (I just selected a paragraph in the Kindle, did a copy, then pasted it here. The second part contains the attribution to the book.):
Applying the Language
To apply the patterns in this book to the solution of the example problem, first build a working pattern language for the project. The language will contain those elements of the fault tolerant vocabulary presented here that will be useful in the design of the system. Patterns are not included if they will clearly not be needed or useful.

I'm looking for something similar, but with CC images on Flickr.
