How to make an Image a Link
Any image can be a hyperlink to another webpage or another website alltogether. This will allow your website's visitors to click on an image and go to a different webpage automatically. We will start using the same code as we did in the previous tutorial and build on it in this example:
<img src="/support/Images/image.jpg" align="middle" width="250" height="320" />
Now we will make it a link. The basic tag to make something an active hyperlink is <a href="/support/___">object/text to be linked</a>. This looks very foreign to new website designers, since href is not a "word" that most people have seen before, but it is used whenever you want to create a link on your website. As with other tags, make sure that you close the <a href> tag with the </a> at the end or the hyperlink will never end. For images, you will simply put the hyperlink tag before and after your image code:
<a href="/support/morepictures.html"><img src="/support/Images/image.jpg" align="middle" width="250" height="320" /></a>
The link above will make the image (image.jpg) a hyperlink to the page morepictures.html on your website.
