Images must be cited with creator, title, and date as available, but the nature of these sources requires that you also provide medium, dimensions, physical location, and where the image was accessed (book/ website):

 

Footnote/ endnote: 3. Firstname Lastname, Title, date, medium, height × width × depth (unit conversion), physical location, accessed from book/ website (date accessed, if website).

Bibliography/ references: Lastname, Firstname. Title. Date. Medium, height × width × depth (unit conversion). Physical location. Accessed from book/ website (date accessed, if website).
