A credit "is not enough" it is for the artists to decide what is enough , not those who use their work without permission..
I've been content provider for ages
content and artistic creation are two different things..
Takes me, or you, less than two seconds to write "sunset over sea at 10pm"
Takes a lot of money for someone to buy the camera to take the picture "sunset over sea at 10pm", and to get to the location..plus their time.
Takes even longer to paint a picture of "sunset over the sea at 10pm" and the materials , paints , canvas etc..
Takes two seconds for a pinner to take each of those things without permission once they are "online"..
Any one can write "sunset over sea at 10pm"..takes no talent , nor any hardship, nor more than two seconds..
To take a good photo or paint a good painting ( so good that a pinner wants to pin it , or a scraper wants to take it ) takes talent , money and time..
You cant pay for cameras or paints with "a credit"..nor can a photographer or an artist whose work gets pinned or taken and used without permission, use "a credit" to pay for groceries..
