How to Resize the Image
If you’re not happy with the size of the image, click on it and resize it by clicking on one of the corners. You can make it as big or small as you’d like by dragging it until it is a perfect size. To add the hyperlink to your image, click as many times as necessary to the right of the image until it turns blue. When the image is highlighted in blue, click on the link icon at the bottom.
When you click OK, the text you wanted the link to show will be right under the image. If you ever want to remove it or make any changes to it, click on the image to see the options for that. You can also see the address you added in case you forget to double-check the URL you added.
To test that the link works, click on the “Test this link” option right below where you entered the URL. A new window will appear with the URL’s website. If everything looks and works okay, you can click on the blue OK button at the bottom-right.
If you click on the “Remove” option, the link will be removed, but the text that you added will remain below the image. To remove it, just erase. By clicking on the URL when you click on the image, the site you added will be opened in a new tab and not in a new window.
