How to use an image as a link to another site?

  1. What I want to do is make not just a text link but an image link to my deviantART gallery. I tried what you see below, but it doesn't work. Maybe the image I chose is too large? If so, that can easily be fixed...but I was sure this code would work otherwise?

    My photos and other artwork are for sale, now...if anyone is interested, drop me a note! My fractal images and some photos are being shown on 
    
    <a href="http://wildwanderingirl.deviantart.com/"><img src="http://wildwanderingirl.deviantart.com/art/Wings-Over-Cosmos-Arty-Look-378532590" /></a>, 
    
    so please stop in for a visit!

    The blog I need help with is wildwanderingirl.wordpress.com.

  2. It's not working because the URL you used isn't an image URL, it's the URL of a page (with the image on it). You need to downsize a copy of the image in an image editing application to the right width for the theme you're using (231px or less), then upload it to your blog via Media > Add New, click Edit, and copy the URL from the File URL field of the Save module: that's the URL you need for an image code.
