To create a clickable image online, all you need is a JPG file and a website address (the URL). Just as you can add a link to any text on a web page or Word document, you can add a link to any image file, including JPGs, PNGs and GIFs.
Use the image icon to insert your image. Click on the image, and in the options, click on ‘Insert link’. Add the URL of where you would like the image to link to and choose the option to open in a new tab if required.
No, directly adding a clickable link to an image is not possible. That is because this depends on the viewer and viewers will all differ. In the specific case you mention that you want it “for adding to a web page”, the answers give ways in using a construct to link image and link together.
Make an Image a Link
- Use the Insert menu and Image to add your image to the page.
- Select (or click) the image and you will see the Image Option dialogue box appear: use the Change link.
- Either choose the page you wish to link to or go to the Web address tab and add the URL you want to link to.
