Adding an image to a reference

It is possible to attach an image to a reference in your EndNote library. This image can then be inserted into a Word document. Simply follow the steps below.

Adding an image to a reference within EndNote

  • Open the reference that you want to add the image to by double clicking on it.
  • Go to References > Figure > Attach Figure...
  • Click on Choose File... and find the image you want to add, then click Open.
  • The image will be added to the Figure field in you reference.
  • Add a name for your image in the Caption field – this will help you to search for it later.
  • Close the reference and save it.

The reference will now display a tick in the figure column to the left of the author name.

Including an image in a Word document

  • Place the cursor in the Word document in the position where you want to insert the image.
  • From the EndNote menu tab in Word 2007 click on the arrow next to Insert Citation and select Find Figure... (In Word 2003 use the Find Figure(s) icon in the EndNote toolbar)
  • Type the name of the caption that you gave to the image in the Find box, then click Search.
  • Highlight the correct image in the list by clicking on it. Then click Insert.

The image will be inserted into your document, together with the caption.
