How do you cite a picture from Google Images?

You must identify the Web site where the image was uploaded in order to mention an image obtained on Google utilizing the image-search feature. Then, reference the image as if you discovered it on the original website where it was posted. If the image lacks an official title, write your own brief description. Then, include the URL of the image you searched for.

Examples: "The photo depicts John Doe standing next to a car owned by his company. It was taken at some event and originally appeared on our company's website at this address." "The image is of David Beckham wearing a Miami Marlins baseball cap. This found item is part of the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City."

Citing images from Google Image Search is different from citing other kinds of references. In the first example, you are referring to an actual physical object; in the second case, you are only mentioning a person or thing that exists only inside someone's mind. Also, Google charges per image search result, so instead of citing one image, you can get charged for multiple results.

If you find an image useful but don't want to reference it, you can send me a message with the subject line "Send me an unreferenced use image" and I'll try to find a good home for it. I may just use it for this article if no one else does!

Do you need to cite images from Google?

When writing a research paper, you may wish to use an image from Google Images. You will not mention Google photos directly, regardless of the citation style you use. Rather, you must navigate via the image and to the page where it may be located. Generally, these pages include a link back to the original image.

In APA, you would simply type in the web address for the image (not including the ".com" or other domain names) into your reference list. In MLA, you would put in the full URL under Web Sources. Either way, you are citing an image that is found online.

Citing images from Google Photos is slightly different. When writing your paper, search within the photo itself using the "search tools" button. This will create a new window with several options. Under "people," select one of the people in the photo. They will now appear in your paper along with their name and date taken. Click on this person's name to go back to the main photo page. Here you can see all the other photos they have tagged as theirs. Click on any of these photos to view them on their own page.

You may want to save some time by adding all persons appearing in the photo to your paper first then searching through those names later.

Do public domain images need to be cited?

Image Citation You must offer a citation if you utilize a picture that you did not produce, even if it is extremely small or in the public domain. Image citations, if available, should include the following information: Information from the repository (museum, library, or other owning institution) where the image is stored. If there is no information about the image source, you may want to use the copyright symbol (©) and number its years of protection plus 20. For example, Copyright © 1998-2015 The Cleveland Museum of Art can be used instead of giving all of the legal details for a single copyright year. Images that are more than 20 years old usually do not require a license.

If you publish an article that includes material based on a public domain image, then you must include a link back to the original image. You should also include a credit line containing the name of the author and a reference to the article where the image appears.

Public domain images are those that have been released into the public domain by their originator/owner who has decided that they will no longer benefit from commercial use. These images can include photographs, artworks, and other materials. They do not include work that is in the public domain because it has been published before 1947 or later than 2019. Also excluded are images that have been placed in the public domain through some form of creative commons licensing.
