hyperlink outside spine error

Hello,
I have a hand coded epub using Sigil where I want to link a set of words to an image. As an example the wording Figure 1 can be clicked to have a image appear large (as if the image was double clicked).
Its coded as this: <a href="../Images/Figure1.jpg">(Figure 1)</a> and it works as expected on the iPad I am testing. Flightcrew has no issues. When I run it through epub check I get the error - hyperlink to resource outside spine. Do I have to list them as ID's as I have seen in another thread here and if so how to I ensure they open large, I don't want them to just go to the page where they are sitting.

I am only creating at the time for the Apple store so only worried about getting it loaded there for now. If I left as is does anyone know if it will go through?

Thanks for guidance.

It has to be placed on a page. It can not be accessed directly, like you might do in a list of illustrations after the table of contents.

As a follow up. I did not make any changes, ignored the error and submitted to Apple. It was accepted. The link from the text to open the image full screen works just as expected.

ibooks will likely be the only scenario where it doesn't cause issues.

If you intend to make money, Apple is about 5% of the market, according to Hitch, if I recall correctly, so coding it this way leaves you out of 95% of the market.

It might work in my tablet, and will fail in my e-reader, maybe even causing a lockup.
