How much credit goes to the computer programmers?

At what point in the creation of "abstract art" by a computer using a realistic photograph as input should the computer programmers start getting some credit? In other words when a realistic photo is turned into an abstract image where the original is not recognizable or barely recognizable? For a person to take credit for creating such an image wouldn't he have to write the computer program, otherwise strictly speaking would it be a collaboration between the photographer and the computer programmers?

Should computer generated images be called computer programmer generated images or better yet computer programmer assisted images (Thanks Rservello)?
