  • The first requisite would be to have a website URL to redirect to, from the image hyperlink that you create. You can either type the URL in manually at a later stage or first type/visit it in the Safari browser. To copy and paste for later, just use the Command-C button for now after selecting the entire URL text.
  • Go to the sharing option such as Mail, or anywhere except iMessage where you want to share the image hyperlink. Find the JPEG image that you want to use a hyperlink, and proceed to attach the image in the Mail or other sharing apps. You can find the images using the “Add Photo or Video” option or use the Finder app to locate it.
  • Drag or open the image as per the previous step and once it is placed into where you want to send it from, highlight the image by dragging the cursor over it. You can also use the keyboard shortcut for selection.
  • Now, select the “Add Link” in the menu bar of your Mail app. It will prompt a text box in which you have to enter the URL from before. You can either copy and paste it in this text box, or type it in. When done, press enters or “Go”, and you have successfully created an image hyperlink out of your JPEG file on your Mac.


Creating hyperlinks is easy and more or less requires the same method. But due to application support and other restrictions in third party apps, or apps not supporting Hyperlinks, it cannot be done. This method may only work if you create a hyperlinked image in Mail, and depends on other native programs and third-party apps to support an Image hyperlink. Apps such as iMessage, Facebook, and other social media apps may not allow you to create hyperlink images because of server and app restrictions as well.
