Current 7th Edition APA Resources

Citing Images in APA

If your assignment requires you to use images, consider the following:

  • Do you have the right to use the image in your project? (see the MRU copyright guide for more information)
  • How does your instructor want you to cite the photo in your paper, on your slides, or on your poster?
    • with a figure note (see the handout below or chapter 5 of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition) 
    • using a regular in-text citation with the image creator's last name and year below the image  e.g. (Smith, 2015)

While the APA manual officially recommends figure notes, your instructor may be okay with you using parentheses - it is best to confirm with them directly.
