See the video tutorial regarding this help section: Uploading and Adding Images

Every new image uploaded must be correctly attributed to its creator, editor, or re-distributor. To do this, some special templates should be used to show the source of the image. To add the templates, either type what is indicated in the summary field when uploaded, or add it by editing the image page afterwards. An up-to-date list of image sourcing templates can be found here.
