The text explicitly stating where they scraped it from is to protect them from claims of DMCA because they are giving you proper credit for ownership of the image, considered to be "Fair Usage". Right or wrong, this is the standard set for content online.
have you tried using Google's authorship to identify your content as being original and owned by you?
but when you use an automatic sitemap generator, it picks only htmls
Does your image have all of the meta data in it asserting you own it, etc?
Actually, no, I only added alt= tag that describes the image, but not that I am its author.
