Citing Images

  • —Even though most information found online is publically accessible, you must cite online or electronic sources anytime you use them, even for informal publications like email, blogs, and PowerPoint presentations.
  • —If authors/creators grant permission for you to use their work, you must still give credit to them.
  • —Consult style manuals for guidance on citing electronic resources.

This flowchart discusses what factors you should consider before posting images you found online.
