Picture credits - It stings, but don't get crushed when you don't get a credit. I bet most of the staff photographers don't get one! Pic ed's hate this, but it's decided by the newspaper editor and chief sub-editor and all down to the in-house style. Some papers do, some don't. However most local rags don't. Why? Usually time constraints by the sub-editors working the page, sometimes forgetfulness and sometimes it's a space issue.
As far as I was aware photo credits are a legal requirement not just a nicety, of course some editors omit them, but if they do most photographers aren't going to bother much, after all most would like to sell their images again to the user!
