According to APA, any image used in your assignment requires a caption. If the image is not your own work it also requires an in-text citation to the original source. Here is how you would cite in-text:
• The word Figure (with a capital letter and in italics)
• A number (from 1, in numerical order)
• A title for the figure or brief description of the work
Under the image:
Figure 1. Radio-Controlled Cars in the United States (Smith, Williams, & Joyner, 2011, p.11).
The in-text citation for the reference of the source (if not your own work), should include the author(s), date and page number for the source, i.e. (Smith, Williams, & Joyner, 2011, p.11).
Since it's 3 or more authors in this book, every citation afterward is known as (Smith et al., 2011, p. 11).
If you got the image from:
• A BOOK, reference it as you would a quotation from a book
• A JOURNAL, reference as you would a quotation from a journal
• A WEB PAGE, reference it as you would a quotation from a web page
