Images Linking to Images

You may also want to have an image load another image. This is commonly used if you have a large image that you might not want displayed every time a reader views the document. For example, this in-line image is a smaller version of a large image:

When this smaller image is selected, a copy of the larger image will be sent to the reader as an external image (ie: the reader must have a helper application to view the image).

The HTML used to create the image link above is:

<A HREF="su.gif"><IMG SRC="su_small.gif"></A><P>

This is a good method for including large images in your documents as it saves a lot of time if the reader is on a slower communications link.

Note that you can also link an image to another document by specifying that document in the anchor tag.

This concludes this lesson of HTML. Please return to the HTML Index or go to the next lesson.
