Can You Hyperlink an Image in Figma?
In today’s digital age, hyperlinking images is an essential tool for any web designer or graphic artist. It’s an easy way to direct your visitors to other pages or sites while providing a visual element to your design. But can you hyperlink an image in Figma?
The answer is yes! While there are some limitations, the basic process is simple and straightforward.
Figma allows you to add a link to any image you add to your design. To do this, select the image you want to link and then click on the ‘Link’ button at the top of the window. From there, you can type in a URL or select an existing page or file from your project.
While it’s relatively easy to create a basic link, there are some limitations when it comes to linking images in Figma. First, you can’t link directly to an external website – instead, you have to link to a page or file within your project. Additionally, if you want your link to open in a new window or tab, that requires additional steps as well.
Fortunately, there are ways around these limitations and Figma has made it easier than ever before by introducing ‘Interactions’ which allow users to create more complex user experiences with their designs. For example, with Interactions, users can set up links that open in a new window or tab as well as links that trigger animations when clicked on.
In conclusion, it is possible to hyperlink images in Figma and although there are some limitations it’s still relatively easy thanks to the introduction of ‘Interactions’. With Interactions users can create more complex user experiences with their designs by setting up links that open in new windows and trigger animations when clicked on.
