Question
hello nancy.

how can i turn a photograph, whether it is one that i took myself or downloaded, or even redirect someone using the infamous CLICK HERE type- into a clickable link.  i am not a computer programmer by any stretch, i don't have anything more than my mac laptop and several programs- that said, i can purchase something if need be, i know where i WANT to go, i just don't have the vehicle or directions to get there. in the simplest of ways, can you please explain the best way to do this?  at the very least redirecting someone with 'vanity' type, i.e. CLICK HERE... help!  THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Answer
Danny - I am not sure what you are trying to do.  I think you are working on a webpage and want to use an image as a hyperlink to another page or image.

The W3schools.com is the source of all html code and it is totally free. The following link will show you how to use an image as a link with a hands on example

http://www.w3schools.com/html/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml_imglink

It is not clear how you are creating the web pages and uploading to a server.

The followng is an HTML tutorial with examples.

http://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp

The W3 will also provide you with information on creating webpages.

I hope this is helpful.
