Hey folks,

I am looking to add a new background image to my website, however the owner of the picture wants the credit for it, and a link to his gallery, how would i do this so that on the website you could click on the link and it actually take you to the new site?

Anyone done this?

Thanks

if you will use that image as the background of your site then it would be impossible to create a link from that..however a simple html code will do for an image link:

<a href="URL" target="_blank"><img src="Image URL"></a>

It would be better if you will just create a link following to his/her site and not an image link for credits..that will do I guess. Anyway, that's just my opinion.

What editor are you using?

You can also make his web site open in a new window. By doing this all the visitor has to do is x his web site and be back on your site.

No one would even be aware to click it if it were possible as it has not been done before. "Background Image provided by xxx" and link the xxx
