General Notes on Using Images

Tips for using images in your reports and presentations:

  • Many images you find online cannot be freely used, because some are prohibited for public use (e.g., logos for businesses or products) and others require copyright owner’s permission.
  • When permissible images are used solely for decorative purpose in presentation slides, no endnotes/footnotes are required. Instead, a brief statement of the source of the image, known as a credit line, is appropriate and usually appears directly under the image.

Examples of credit lines:

  • Photograph by [creator’s name] from [URL]
  • Image courtesy of [name of the organization] from [URL]
  • [Title and embedded URL of the Creative-Commons-licensed image] by [creator’s name] is licensed under CC BY [license type]

Data Tables

If you reproduce or adapt a data table from a source or multiple sources, you must include full citation information in an unnumbered footnote (i.e., source note) below the table. The note is introduced by “Source:” or “Sources:” in italics followed by the full citation(s). Consult the appropriate examples in this guide for the type of sources where data are taken from.

For example, if you source a data table from the Statistics Canada’s Census Program website, consult the endnote/footnote examples under “Statistical Sources à Census Program Statistics Canada” in this guide.

Figures

Figures include charts, diagrams, graphs, and maps. When you use any visuals found online as figures, you must include full citation information in an unnumbered footnote (i.e., source note) below the figure. The note is introduced by “Source:” in italics followed by the full citation. Consult the appropriate examples in this guide for the type of sources in which you find the figure.

For example, if you source a figure from a company website, consult the endnote/footnote examples under “Web Sources - Company Information” in this guide.
