Some Guides about Citation Styles

Citing an Image using American Psychological Association (APA) Citation Style

Images should have a credit line at the end of the caption. APA suggests that the image should be discussed in the text and cited. If the reproduction of a copyrighted image is not fair use, you would need to obtain permission from the copyright holder to use it. The reprinted with permission statement is not needed when it is fair use.

Images should have a credit line at the end of the caption, where parentheses are optional. If citing the source as a whole, use an in-text citation at the end of the credit line; otherwise, the citation should be contained in the credit line. If the reproduction of a copyrighted image is not fair use, you would need to obtain permission from the copyright holder to use it. Either way, do not forget to cite it.

Citing an Image using Modern Language Association (MLA) Citation Style

Images that have a credit line at the end of the caption are not required on the Works Cited page. If the reproduction of a copyrighted image is not fair use, you would need to obtain permission from the copyright holder to use it.
