Citing Google (or Bing) Images

1. Find the image's source.

When you use Google image search, Google is not your source. It's the tool you are using to find your source. It's important to click on the image and determine the Web site that Google is pulling the image from.

2. Then, cite the image from that website.

If the image doesn't have a title, write a short description of your own.
