Citing Images in a Presentation

How to Cite photographs or other images in a PowerPoint presentation or other Web Project

Cite an image used in a PowerPoint presentation or Web project the same way you would cite it in a printed paper. 

  • If the image is just for illustration, create a caption with the full publication details.  If there is no title, create one by describing the image.  If the URL is really long, use a URL shortener.
Image from a Website Creator’s Last Name, First Name. "Title of Photo/Image." Title of Website, Publisher, Date of Publication, URL. Date of Access. 
Image from Instagram Account holder’s Last Name, First Name or Username. "Title of Photo/Image or Description." Instagram, Other Contributors, Date Photo was published, URL.  Date of Access
Image In-Hand Creator’s Last Name, First Name. Title of Photo/Image. Date
  • If you refer to the image in the presentation, the caption should provide only enough detail needed to link to a Works Cited on the last slide.

Be completely transparent and always reference/cite when you use AI. 

Warning: You may be tempted to use ChatGPT for school work, however keep in mind that it may not provide accurate or reliable information.  It makes things up, including sources! It's important to critically evaluate the responses generated by ChatGPT and to use it only as a supplement to other research tools and sources.
