If there is no title on an item, e.g. photo from the web, create a title and enter it in square brackets in place of the title (American Psychological Association, 2020, pp. 346-347).

The following instructions show you how to cite but not reproduce images. To reproduce an image, you may need to get permission. Use the in text citation when you are citing the image in the body of your work, and the reference list entry for your reference list at the end. 

 

If you can't find who created an image on a site like Pintrest, try doing a reverse image search to see other pages where an image has been published. This may give you more information. This page demonstrates how to do a reverse image search

 

Clip art or stock image

Note: You don’t need to reference clip art that is part of programs like Microsoft Word or PowerPoint. If you can’t find a title for the image, use a description in square brackets instead.
