Citing Images in APA

To cite images in APA format, follow this template: 

Image creator’s Last name, First initial. Middle initial. (Year published). Title of image [Photograph, Cartoon, Painting, etc.]. Retrieved from URL. 


[Photograph of Franklin D. Roosevelt at his desk] (2017). Retrieved from https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2017/04/25/the-white-house-boo-boo-in-counting-roosevelts-executive-orders/?utm_term=.06cac0ac12e5


In APA, if the image does not have a formal title, describe the image and place the description in brackets.
If the author AND the title of the image are both missing, create a description, place it in brackets, and include the year and the URL (see the example above)
In APA, do not place a period at the end of the URL
