This page covers how to insert tables, other images, and videos into a paper or presentation.
Tables and musical examples have their own format. Any other type of image, including charts,graphs, and videos uses the figure format.

The URL is linked in the example above because this example appears on a website. Normally this is not done in a paper or presentation.
Also add the table to the works-cited-list and give complete citation information, unless the table is not cited in the text of the paper.

If the image is purely an illustration, then it is not a source. Include complete citation information in the caption and do not add it to your works-cited-list. Punctuate as you would a works-cited-list entry, but do not reverse the author's name.
For this example imagine that you are giving a presentation on Aztec creation myths. You want to include an image of the the Aztec goddess Coatlicue in your PowerPoint. Coatlicue is one of the goddesses featured in one of the creation myths. Your presentation is not about Coatlicue, and you are not going to analyze the image of her that you are including. The purpose of the image is to add some visual interest to your presentation. This is an illustration. Include the complete citation information in the caption and do not add it to your works-cited-list.

Note: The URL is linked above because this example is published on a website. It would not usually be linked on a paper or presentation. (Link it in a presentation if you are planning to click on it in the course of the presentation.)
Because this image is published on a publicly available web page, the licensing information is also included:

If your paper is only going to be turned in to your professor and will not be published in any format, including on the web, then there is no need to include the licensing information.
Musical examples use Ex. for example instead of Fig. for figure, but otherwise follow the figure format.
