How do you cite a picture from a website?
The citation for images or pictures accessed from an online source (website) should contain the following:
- The name of the person who created the image if available in last name, first name format. Else, you could provide the name of the author of the web page.
- Next, provide the title of image followed by a period, in quotation marks. If a title is not available give a brief description of the image within quotation marks.
- Write what exactly the image is, for example it could be a photo, a cartoon, a drawing, a map, etc. This is done using just one word.
- Provide the title of the website from which the image is being accessed. The title is written in italics followed by a space.
- Look for the publication date of the website and provide the same.
- Also provide the date on which you viewed the image on the website.
- The final item in the citation is the address of the website enclosed within angular brackets.
