How do you add a url?


Recommended Posts

skullbonz is correct.  Paint.NET does not add URLs to images because an image cannot inherently hold a URL.  If you're using a GUI image editor, you should just be able to select the picture and click the "hyperlink" button, just as if you were adding the link to text.  If you're editing the HTML directly, the HTML should look something like this:

<a href=" target url here "> <img src=" image url here " /> </a>

Simple as that!

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

If you are making a banner, then make one. That is what artists do.

It has been pointed out that images cannot carry URLs so it is the job of the web guy to add the URL to your finished image within the HTML (or whatever) code that makes up the web page.

If the company has hired you to add images and URLs to their website you have no right claiming you can do so or touching their code without at least a basic knowledge of HTML.

As a professional web developer for the past three years and a hobbyist web developer for the past fifteen years, I can honestly say that I have no idea what you're talking about, Visual.  The reason for using "nofollow" is solely to prevent search engines from indexing the link.  Using "target=_self" is a waste of characters, since that's the default.  Just do it like this: 

 

<a href=" target url here "> <img src=" image url here " /> </a>

Also, there's no such thing as link juice.
