How to Cite an Image in PPT

Note: When citing an image from Google Images, you must cite the original source page of the image. Do not use the URL from the enlarged image.
1) You can write the author name or the website name in italics or in a pair of parentheses at the bottom of the image or at the footer of the slide.
2) You can name the images in the presentation by Figures or Names, then give the full detail of the image at your appendix page which is usually positioned at the end of the slides or on a separate page.
