Bug Description

The photos that are included on the Team pages are either from users or groups of users and as such the photos are being made available under a variety of licenses/no license.

Many of the photos are under an Creative Commons license, and all CC licenses require attribution when the photo is reused. The use of the photos both on the Team page and in the lightbox do not include attribution information.

A solution would be to include the attribution information included underneath each photo on the Team page and in the lightbox view. It should include:

<a href="link-to-the-photo-information-url">Photo Title</a> by <a href="link-to-the-user's-account">User Account Name</a> - <a href="link-to-specific-CC-license">Short Name of CC License</a>

eg, for one of my photos it would be:
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/grggrssmr/5587639212">Jammers</a> by <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/grggrssmr/">Greg Grossmeier</a> - <a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/">CC BY-SA</a>

[Relatedly: For photos not available under a CC license, it is questionable if we have the right to put those photos in the lightbox/on the Team page in the first place. It could be argued that they (the user) gave implicit permission by linking their flickr/picasa/pixie id to the Team or sharing their photo to a flickr group. This isn't a show stopper issue right now, just something to think about.]
