Hi all!
I often use pictures under creative common license and, of course, I need to quote the creators.
I've added references in the comment section so far but it's very uncomfortable, also because sometimes I don't have enough characters to post the entire reference.
Could you suggest a better solution? Many people on TikTok don't care about this but I think if I use an artist's work the least I can do is to quote him or her.

Hello, what you can do in the caption of your TikTok video is tag the original creator with their TikTOk handle. Then add "dc" (dance credit) before the tag.

There should be enough characters to do this.

Hi david thank you for your answer! However I was talking about quoting creators outside tiktok, for example when I use pictures from wikimedia requiring to quote the author. Anyway if I have to quote another tiktoker I'll follow your advice

Hey, in that case, it may be enough just to quote Wikimedia. And if you really want to include the full source, you could continue as you are in the comments section.
