A caption appears next to the image and identifies or describes the image, and credits the source. There is no standard format for captions.
Point out any aspects of the image that you think are noteworthy or relevant. You may want to include:
- Architecture & Interior Design
architect or designer, type of illustration (e.g., interior, exterior, plan, elevation, drawing), location (street address, intersection, neighborhood, city, state/province, region), year built, year designed, year pictured, block & lot, GPS coordinates, official name of site.
model or person, label or house, type of garment, fabric or material, collection or season, runway look number, location.
type of print, name of series, location.
A citation appears in a note or in a bibliography and should follow the conventions provided in a style guide. However, there is no standard format for citations, either. The key to a good citation is that provides enough information to help readers locate the image.
