Crediting images with the three point attribution technique


To credit the source of an image you use in your work, you can use the three-point attribution technique. The three-point attribution consists of the image title, the creator, and license number. The source page of the image should be hyperlinked. You can search Creative Commons Openverse for images you are permitted to use. You will find the image title, creator, and license number which you should include next to the image you use.


Step 1: Use keywords to search for an image

Step 2: Click on the image you want to use

Step 3: Copy the attribution displayed in the bottom right corner

Step 4: Insert the image and the attribution in your text
