The QBS style of citing an image.

So you have found some images on a website. Here is how to cite them properly using the QBS style of citation. There are many different ways to do it but we keep it simple so everyone can understand.

How to cite an image.

First you need to list the creators surname and then their initial, if it is given.  Gilchrist, S.
Now describe it. Is it a photo, map, cartoon, drawing, etc. Gilchrist, S. (photo)



Make sure you have got the original image. The cut and paste the link. Easy :)


The best place to get images from is Britannica Image Quest. After that try Flickr and use the advanced search to find Creative Commons images.
