Citing Images

Citing Images

Citing images is an important part of using image sources responsibly at George Brown College. It is always best to make sure you are getting your images from approved sources - Creative Commons, Public Domain sites or Library databases (like Britannica ImageQuest). But even if you do find images in the pubic domain, we encourage you to make sure you still provide citations for those images. 

When citing an image, you need to make sure you include the following information: 

  • Title or description of the image
  • Name of the creator of the image (as it appears on the website or book etc) 
  • Date of creation (if possible) 
  • URL or where you found it. 

Make sure to follow the preferred citation style requested by your instructor.
