Question Linking to an image

Does anyone know how to link to images that are placed throughout the chapters of the book. I had no problem linking to references, endnotes, and chapter headers. On the Ipad the links brought up the images in a separate window which was fine. On the Nook simple touch and the hd+ the links did not work at all. Also, when converted to .mobi the links did not work on the kindle fire. Does anyone have any tips on how to link directly to the image either on the actual page where it is located or in another window. An example of the code I am using is:

By doing so, we can know the effects of modifying the meplat on the BC of the 168 grain VLD. Figures <a
href="../Images/ABDOC_109_1_7mmPart1p5.jpg"><b>5</b></a> and <a href="../Images/ABDOC_109_1_7mmPart1P6.jpg"><b>6</b></a> show the results of the BC testing.</p>



The code for one of the images is:

<div class="image"><img alt="ABDOC_109_1_7mmPart1p5" src="../Images/ABDOC_109_1_7mmPart1p5.jpg" /></div>

You need to use the <a> tag with 'id' attribute. if you want to make sure it doesn't open in a new window, use target=_self

So if you have somefile.xhtml:
Code:
<div class="image"><img alt="ABDOC_109_1_7mmPart1p5" src="../Images/ABDOC_109_1_7mmPart1p5.jpg" ><aid="someid"></a></img></div>
and in someotherfile.xhtml
Code:
...
<p>By doing so, we can know the effects of modifying the meplat on the BC of the 168 grain VLD. Figures <a
href="somefile.xhtml#someid" target="_self"><b>5</b></a> and...</p>
...

Use of the "target" attribute MAY not validate properly. It SHOULD default to self if used in a reader/app, but on a PC it depends on the browser settings.

You don't need to add an <a> element as anchor, you can simply add an ""id" attribute:

Code:
<div class="image" id="someid"><img alt="" src="..." /></div>
and then use <a href="..."> as normal.

PS. Do not add some meaningless text in the "alt" attribute. The alt attribute is intended to be shown/read when the image is not displayed. It should be something descriptive if the image is something important, but if it's just a decorative image it's better left blank.

Thanks for the help everyone! Does anyone have a good idea on how to link back from the image to the reference in the text. On the newer readers if you click the image it opens up in a separate window where you are able to zoom in and out. I would like to keep that functionality while also being able to return to the reference point in the text where the user was before linking to the image.

You'd have to add an explicit "link back" or, better yet, rely on readers having a proper "back" function.

It has a back button but it doesn't return to a location within the epub. It jumps you out of the epub and up to the start screen of the book or to the toc.

Ah, that might be. To be honest I never used it.
