Is "creator" well defined anywhere? If you have the idea to take a photo of
yourself against a particular background, choose the spot, set the camera
settings, frame it, then hand it to a passerby saying "can you press this
button when I say GO", and later download the photo, photoshop it, crop it,
upload it etc - are you really saying that that passer by is the "creator"
of the photo?
No idea if that's the case here, but I don't think the button pusher should
necessarily get all the credit, or even *any* credit if they've been told
exactly what to do.
