Attributing means giving credit. It's the same idea as "citing."
Citing = Attributing
Citation = Attribution
Below are the two main methods of attributing or citing materials. Check with your instructors for their preferred method(s).
Below is an example in APA style.
Owner/Author/Creator. (Publication Date or n.d.). Title of image in italics [media type such as Painting, Photograph, Infographic]. Retrieved from URL.

Use the acronyms (like CC BY SA), or the text versions of the license (e.g. CC Attribution - Share Alike, which is the text version of CC BY SA). For public domain material, add "Public Domain."
