HTML: Using a picture as a link to a larger version of that picture
If you have a picture that is too large for the page, but still want to be able to show people the large image, create a link to that larger image. A good way to do this is to use a smaller sized version of said picture in order to give the user a preview or to entice them to click it. This can be done different ways, Here is an easy one:
to explain further: an a tag is placed around the picture you want to use as a link. In the css, under the a tag, set border:none and text-decoration:none if you do not want any colors surrounding the picture. Next, under the css for the img tag, make the width something that fits within your page like 450px; This will take a little longer to load on the page, but if you set the href in the a tag to the same thing as the src in the img tag, you will have a perfectly working image link to a larger version of that same image!
In fact, if you click the above image of html code (white background), you can see this effect in action. It makes the type readable!
