Psychology Extended Essay-Footnotes, in-text citations, graphs/figures

I'm having a little trouble with my extended essay. I want to use a figure I found in a psychology study but after looking around how to cite direct quotes, it says I need to ask the person who wrote the paper or something for permission to use it. Is this true? Also does anyone know how I cite direct quotes plus their footnote? I'm having a lot of trouble finding it, because when I search online, I'm given multiple answers and I don't have a clue as to which I use.

Here is the site that says copyright footnotes need the "required authorization":

I believe that you only need permission if you are using a large portion of the quote - I think it's 500+ words. It also depends which referencing style you are using. When you mean figure, are you asking about a picture or a study?

Try using http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/ It has a guide for various referencing styles and really helped when I was doing my EE in psych :) I'm not too sure what you mean by direct quotes plus their footnote?
