Adding external links to your images in WordPress is easy. When the image is clicked on, the user is taken to the link. You have two choices in how the user is taken to the link. The link can either open up in the same window, thus taking the user away from the site or it can be opened up in a new window. If using the latter technique, the window for the original site is kept open.
When you should have your image link open up in the same window or a different window is up for debate and not the subject of this particular blog. In this blog, I will demonstrate how you can set up your WordPress image to open up a new window for an attached link.
