Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

An image from an electronic source can be cited according to the Chicago Citation Style 15th Edition in three different ways.

The format for the full note is:

Author First Name/Initial Surname, Image Title, Year, URL.

The format for a concise note is:

Author Surname, Image Title.

And the format for the bibliography is:

Author Surname, First Name or Initial. Image Title. Year. URL.

As an example consider this image taken from the website

The citation in full note in this case would be:

Buck Lewis, NWO, 2012,

The concise note for the same image is:

Lewis, NWO.

And the bibliography is:

Lewis, Buck. NWO, 2012,
