The internet has become a popular source of information. In most cases, the same rules apply for visual imagery as to a printed source. When a writer must refer an image or website, the information must be cited from that source.
Copying visual information or graphics from a webpage or from a printed source is very similar to quoting print information. For some graphics, permission must be obtained from the website’s owner before using the graphics. The source of the visual information or graphic must be cited.
