If you reproduce or adapt an image, table, or figure from another source in work that will be formally published, presented, or publicly available, you need to include full copyright attribution in the note beneath the element, in addition to a full entry in your reference list.
You may also need to seek permission from the copyright holder to reproduce the image/table/figure, and include this information in the note field also, where applicable. You should assume that the content you want to reproduce is subject to copyright (unless explicitly stated otherwise) and seek permission accordingly.
However, if your work is for an assignment that will only ever be viewed by your tutor, supervisor, or classmates, ensure you reference your image/table/figure in line with the Wintec APA guidelines for undergraduate students.
For guidance on whether you need to seek permission, see the New Zealand Intellectual Property Office.
When images/tables/figures have been adapted, this should also be noted (see the last example on this page).
Figure reproduced when permission is not required
The example below shows the correct method of copyright attribution for a figure/graph reproduced when permission to do so is not required.
(Although it was not necessary, in this case, to seek the copyright holder's permission to reproduce the graph, copyright attribution is nonetheless provided (highlighted)).
Figure reproduced with permission
The example below shows the correct method of copyright attribution for a figure/graph reproduced when permission to do so is required and has been obtained from the copyright holder (highlighted).
Reproducing an image in the public domain or creative commons
Images in the public domain are not subject to copyright, and therefore do not require copyright attribution or permission when reproducing. However, it should still be noted that the image is in the public domain. As the image has been adapted/modified from the original, this is also noted (highlighted below).
