The instructions in this section concern references to stand-alone visual works such as artwork and photographs.

If the image has been retrieved from a website, include the URL of the website in the reference.
NB! Use this format to cite visual works, but not to reproduce them. To reproduce visual works, permission and/or a copyright attribution may be necessary in addition to the reference (see section Reproducing visual works).
