This page will help you cite images. Be sure to keep track of the basic information needed for citing images:
Title of work
Publication date (if applicable)
Materials and dimensions (depending on style)
Location of work (website, museum, repository, collection, et cetera)
If you found the image in a book or periodical, you will need to cite the book's or magazine's information. If you found the image on the web or in an online database, you will need to cite the database name, URL, identifying file number for the image, and date of access. See examples for APA, MLA, and Turabian in the following sections.
At the very least, still do your best:
Captions appear below the image and typically begin with the abbreviation for Figure (Fig.), then followed by assigned Arabic numerals and a brief description.
An entry in the works-cited list is not necessary if an image caption provides complete information about the source, and it is the only time the source is referenced in the text.
Remember to NEVER cite Google Image as the source of an image. You will want to find the original location of an image, by clicking on the image.
If your instructor may requires you to use a specific style manual; consult the manual for the proper format of your citation.
