How do I insert an image that when people place their cursor over it, and click, it takes them to another site?

You'll have to pardon my ignorance guys, but i've just had a mental blank.. it's called a Hyperlink or something? I can't remember exactly how to do it..

One suggestion.....I have had success with getting site hits from Google image searches....I make sure to have alt tags for my images...I have not read where that makes a difference but I do know before I started doing that I was not getting many site hits from image searches.

Hi John,

I'm sorry - you've lost me...
Care to explain exactly what you mean by 'alt tags' and site hits from google image searches?
What images do you have?

The more marketing advise I can get, the better.. I'm trying to start a business.

Hi Marcela,

Google has a number of different search robots and some can search files including images. They don't read the image as they can't interpret that stuff but they can read the file names and if you have very descriptive names it can introduce these as plusses for your site. The alt tag is an alternative tag for your picture description. You've seen these when you mouse over some images and a little window with a label comes out.

Ok so basically, if i insert an image to my site from my PC, with the file name 'ICE CREAM' (because it's an ice-cream) then that's what you mean? As opposed to saving as "Picture 1" or something like that?

Yes . Exactly correct.
The alt tag is done differently depending on the type of image placement

<!--
<a href="http://yoursite.com">
<img src="http://yoursite.com/resources/{folder..." title="alternative tag description here"></a>
-->

or from the builder:

There's two things here:
the" filename"
and the "alt tag" also known as "alternative text"

Thanks Peter you explained it better than I would....Marcela I use keywords.....like if my image is an end table the tag will say "end table brown" or "wood table" etc.
