The way to do this is to put the HTML tags for inline images within the hypertext portion of the anchor tag:
<a href="fileX.html"> <img src="graphic.gif"> Go to Document X</a>In your web page, this HTML will display an inline image and the text Go to Document X. Both will act as hyperlinks; clicking on either the text or the picture will tell your web browser to go to the HTML file fileX.html. The image alone could be a hyperlink. In the World Wide Web, a "HyperGraphic" generally is surrounded by a colored box matching the color of hypertext on your web page, so you know that it is "active".
NOTE: Many browsers now can alter the color of hypertext and some pages have suppressed the display of the outline around HyperGraphic links. Generally, you can identify a hyperlink area on a web page by looking for a change in the cursor as it passes over a "hot" region. The cursor usually changes from an arrow to a hand when it passes over an active link.Now we will create a "hyper" graphic button. First, you need to get a copy of an arrow button from the Lesson 8e Image Download Center.
From a design standpoint, we recommend that if you use pictures to act as hyperlinks that you offer also a text link or use the ALT= attribute in the <IMG...> tag in case the viewer has turned off the loading of images.
You should now have a copy of the image file somewhere on your computer (You should move it to the pictures folder/directory in your workarea).
Next, add the HTML to make the button work:
<hr> <a href="index.html#usa"> <img src="../pictures/left.gif"> Return to <i>Volcano Web</i></a>
Note: The inline image tag (<img...>) is completely within the anchor between the > that marks the end of the URL and the </a> that marks the end of the hypertext. Also note how the <i> tag is used within the active hypertext to emphasize the title of the lesson. And finally, we have used the <hr> tag to put a horizontal rule or a line above the button graphic (for more on this tag see lesson 4).
First, you need to get a copy of the two image files from the Lesson 8e Image Download Center. (These files should be stored in your pictures folder/directory of your workarea).
Next, create the postage stamp link in your main text file:
This field seismometer measures earthquakes associated with subsurface volcanic forces and may help to predict future events. It sits on a plateau known as the "Volcanic Tableland" formed by a major eruption 600,000 years ago. <p> <a href="../pictures/seismo.jpg"> <img src="../pictures/stamp.gif" ALT="link to large image" WIDTH="62" HEIGHT="85"> -- [full size image, 55k] -- </a> <p> This seismometer measures earthquakes associated with subsurface volcanic forces.
The inline image, stamp.gif acts as a hyperlink to a larger image, seismo.jpg. When a user clicks on either the "postage stamp" or the text "-- [full size image, 55k] --", your web browser will display the larger image in a browser page.
Note the use of the dimensions of the stamp.gif image in the <img...> tag as well as the ALT=... attribute.
In our hypertext link we provide information that this image is 55k in size. By doing this, you provide the viewer the choice if they want to download an image of that size... If the link leads to something that is 1.6 Mb, as a viewer you might want to know that before you tried to view such a large file size.
