I want to use some pictures that are published unter the CC Attribution 2.0 Generic licence: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/ The licence says that I have to provide a link to this licence and that I must give appropriate credit.

But where and how should I provide this things on my website? Do you have experience with this kind of "problem"?

On any page that uses the content licensed under the CC Attribution 2.0 Generic licence must contain the link to that license and the appropriate credit. If you use a lot of content under this license you might find it easier to put the link to the license on every page, most likely in a footer. But the attribution must be specific for each piece of content so unless it, too, it common to every page that will probably have to be specific to each page.
