The HTML anchor tag is used to create the Image link. You can insert the HTML image <img> inside the opening and closing <a> and </a> hyperlink anchor tags to create the image link. Image becomes clickable by applying the <a> tag on it. Use the href attribute of <a> tag to pass the location URL of destination page. Further you can specify the target attribute values of anchor tag to open the link in new window or same window when user clicks on image link. You can use "_blank" value for target attribute of <a> tag to open the image link in new window. By default without target attribute specified for <a> tag image link will open in the same parent window. There occurs only one problem while mapping link on HTML image <img> tag, by default it shows purple colored border of image link. But it can be resolved very easily by specifying border="0" attribute of <img> tag. You can also use style attribute of <img> by specifying the inline style to remove the border of <img>.
