Sometimes, you might want to create a link to an image. This allows a reader to view the image if they select the link. For example:
A picture of the <A HREF="ausflag.gif">Australian flag </A>.
creates a link in the current document called Australian flag that when
selected would send the
ausflag.gif image to the reader.
Note: When an image is listed in the HREF attribute of an Anchor tag, many
browsers require that the reader have a helper application to view the image.
A helper application is a software program that helps the reader's browser do things like display images, view movies, and play sound.
Here is the Australian flag link as it appears to the reader:
A picture of the Australian Flag.
If you select the Australian flag link above, a helper application will display the image. If your browser doesn't have a helper application, you may be given options to download the image for viewing on another device at a later time.
Can an image be a link?
