How to turn a picture into a link {the easy blogger way}

It's been a while since I've shared a blogger tip and this is one of the first things I learned on Blogger and it's been super helpful ever since! (By the way I haven't switched over to the new blogger interface yet because I just don't like it! lol It's a little confusing!) I recently added this simple graphic....

under "My Business" on my left sidebar and I used this tip I'm about to show you! You will need either a photobucket account or you can use tinypic to host your image. Upload your image and grab the HTML code. Under Design click "Add a Gadget" on the side you want to add your new graphic...
Choose the "HTML/Javascript" Gadget...
Paste your HTML code in the box:
Click on "Rich Text"
and you will see your graphic, then highlight it...
while the graphic is highlighted hit the little world link button..
Enter the URL where you want your new graphic to re-direct
when clicked on. Click OK then SAVE and then test
you new graphic by clicking on it on your blog page to see if it worked!
It should work! It has always works for me and I hope it
works for you too and makes your blogging life a little easier! :)
If you would like to view more of my blogging tips just click that
