When adding a reference to an image that is a screenshot, what is the proper way to cite in APA style?

Also, who is considered the artist in this case? The person who took the screenshot, the website where I've found the image or the creator of the software?


Generic APA format for websites and the like is:

Author, A. (date). Title of document [Format description]. Retrieved from http://URL

In your case, Author, A. would be (IMHO) the author of the screenshot, Title of document would be something descriptive of the image (probably depends on what you want to highlight / why you're "citing" the image), Format description would be something in the lines of "Image, screen capture".
