Notice that you can also choose to open the address in a new window.

To link the images in your Newsletter template, is quite similar to what you’ve just learned.

Click on the image you would like to link (1), and then click on the little pencil icon on the Pop Up menu that will appear (2).

You will see a new window called IMAGES ATRIBUTES and you have to paste or type the address you want to link to the image in the right field as you see in this picture:
