I've used some answers here to help make figures and do other things in documents I've created.

To make the question specific, consider this question - drawing oddly shaped nodes to contain existing nodes in tikz which will affect a figure I'll be publishing soon.

Now the question comes - how do I attribute this?

This question addresses attributing things, but the license has since been updated.

So my question is basically - do I just need a comment in .tex file saying

%this method comes from <url>

or do I need something in my bibliography?

or something directly where the figure appears in the text?

I put comments in my source code, and this in the Preface to the book where I thank folks for help.
