All pictures, photographs, graphs, and other graphics you provide in your essays should be directly related to your thesis. Don't just include nice photographs for the sake of it; use images that will: * Aid your viewers in understanding your argument. As we have seen, research shows that using images with text helps readers understand the text's content more easily and quickly. * Provide evidence that supports your argument. Not all images are created equal. Some are simply decorative while others show a specific object in a clear and concise way that allows us to judge its significance.
Images can also help make your essay more interesting to read. That's why many scientific papers and academic articles include them. They not only make your paper look nicer but they also often serve as effective tools for making your point clearer to your audience.
Of course, like any other type of media, images can also fail to communicate their message effectively. This can happen if you use inappropriate ones or if you write something that cannot be supported by visual material. In this case, your reader will just ignore your call to action. It's best to avoid such problems by looking around you own environment or at other relevant sources of information before starting work on your essay.
Images can certainly add flair to your writing! Just make sure that they're relevant to your topic and help to explain our arguments or support our claims.
For example, if you are writing on Louis XIV furniture, we may want a photograph of a Louis XIV-style chair but not of King Louis XIV. Provide only one image per essay.
Images that are relevant to your topic but which do not meet this criterion may be retained as bookmarks or reminders for future reference. For example, if you were writing on French fashion during the Ancien Régime, we might want a picture of Marie Antoinette wearing a feathered headdress like those worn by her predecessors to illustrate how she continued this tradition. However, since this image is not essential to your argument, we would want to keep it as a reminder of past styles rather than include it in our essay.
As with any piece of academic writing, your essay must be accurate. Therefore, make sure that all quotes are accurately attributed. Also, be sure to follow any naming conventions your school or department has established for papers written about individuals. These may include not using first names, last names, or titles when referring to people still living or dead. Finally, proofread your work carefully before submitting it; find someone who knows English well and ask them to review your essay.
Make sure to provide a direct link to the image in the body of your article. If you've included an image to illustrate a point, for example, you'd say something like "An example of this may be seen in Figure 1."
This is important because images are very large compared to words and it's difficult for readers to navigate through long essays that contain many links to other pages. They need to know where to find these images if they want to follow along.
It's also important because otherwise people won't see your images. If someone wants to read about your examples but can't find them, they might give up reading entirely. This would be a shame since your article could have been useful to them.
In addition, including references helps others reproduce your results if they want to. Science isn't just done by one person; it's done by teams of researchers who build on each other's work. Having references allows others to continue where you leave off which improves research overall.
Last but not least, references help us learn more about our topic. As scientists we always want to know more about things we encounter during our studies. By referencing other works related to our own research we can learn more about their findings too which increases our understanding of the subject.
As you can see references play an important role in science and academics.
