Images as Links

You can create an image that is a link. This allows the user to select the image (instead of a piece of text) to activate the link. The HTML icon at the bottom of this page is an image that is a link.

A link can be either text or an image (or both). For example:

<A HREF="ausflag.html"><IMG SRC="ausflag.gif"></A>

Creates a link that is the ausflag.gif image. When that image is selected, it loads the document ausflag.html. Here is the link as it is displayed to the reader:

If you select the image above, the document ausflag.html will be displayed.

You should also note that the image has a colored border, which is the same color used for text-based links, to indicate that it is a link.

Can a image link to another image?
