Citing an image in Chicago style requires you to include much of the same information you would including in citing a print resource like author(s)/editor(s), title of image, and publication date. Chicago style dictates a different citation format depending on whether the image is from an electronic resource or published photograph.

If the image is from an electronic resource


Author First Name/Initial Surname, Image Title, Year, URL.

Bibliography (don't forget to indent the second and subsequent lines): 

Author Surname, First Name or Initial. Image Title. Year. URL.

If the image is a published photograph


Author First Name/Initial Surname, "Photograph Title," Year Photo was Taken (if provided), in Book Title (Place of Publication: Publisher, Year), page or plate #.


Author Surname, First Name or Initial. "Photograph Title." Year Photo was Taken (if provided). In Book Title. Place of Publication: Publisher, Year, page or plate #.
