HTML Image Link

We can use HTML images to improve the structure of the web page and make the web page more expressive and appealing. We can even use HTML images as links, meaning if we click on the image, it acts as a link and takes us to a different page.

We will comprehend more about the HTML image link in this article. It is vital to comprehend HTML images before we learn the HTML image link, so let us understand HTML images first.

HTML Images

In earlier times, HTML language was used to insert only textual content on web pages, which was quite boring, and people were not interested in reading web pages. Then, the developers created an <img> tag, which is used to add images to the web page so that the web page looks interesting.


We can witness in the above syntax that there is <img> tag and two attributes which are "src" and "alt".

  • <img>: It is a self-closing tag, which does not require separate opening and closing tags.
  • "src": The "src" attribute adds the URL or path of your desired image.
  • "alt": The "alt" attribute is used to add some text related to the image, which can be the name of the image.

We can insert images on the web page using two methods.

  1. The first method is to provide a URL to access the internet file.
  2. The second method is to provide a path of the file related to the location of the current web page.

It is easy to create an HTML image link. We have to use <a> tag to add the link in combination with the <img> tag. We have already understood the <img> tag. Let us now understand the <a> tag.

<a> Tag:

The <a> is the anchor tag used to add the link on the web page, which helps users move from one page to another.

Syntax of <a> tag:

<a href="link">Some Text about the link </a>

  • <a>: It is the opening tag of the anchor.
  • </a>: It is the closing tag of the anchor
  • href: It is the attribute that is used to create a hyperlink. The link could be to any web page on the same page, etc.
