using images you find on wikipedia - "creative commons" licences?

There are a few images I want to use for a presentation I'm giving and some of them have this licence called "Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license." when I clicked on the link it said "You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work). "

None of the images I'm thinking of using have any comment from the author about attribution, so if I want to be totally kosher, what do I put on the powerpoint slides when I use these photos?

The image in question is this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cu...oyster.jpg.jpg

I'd say "Photo by Istara", maybe the date, and link to the Wikipedia File: page.

(not a lawyer...but I use a (slightly different) CC license for my photos and that's what I'd want)

that oyster looks disgusting...
I would just use "image by:" then put a citation at the end or something.
