APA 7 Reference Examples

No attribution required

If you include an image in your paper from a source that clearly states there is no attribution required then you do not need to include an in-text reference, reference list entry or copyright note. Include a Figure number (i.e. Figure 1) and a title above the image. A note below the image is optional.

Attribution Required - In text

If the source states that attribution is required, include a Figure # above the image, then include a copyright statement in a note below the image and a reference list entry.

Please see for detailed instructions on how to cite images within your paper or presentation.

Attribution but no picture included

If you are not including the picture, but only referring to it, include an in-text citation, i.e. (Bracco, 2006) and a reference list entry (as above).
