Static Images.

"Static images should be generally attributed the same way as dynamic 
images, " I agree & a way to enable users to easily add attribution 
needs to be created. The Share>Image feature on the main page should 
automatically image stamp the attribution into the corner. "images of 
areas less 10’000 m2or fewer than 100 features do not require 
attribution." For a static image I'm struggling to see what the area 
coverage or the number of items contained has to do with adding an 
attribution - an image is an image, irrelevant of size. DaveF On
