Add Hyperlink to images using jQuery

To Add Hyperlink to the image, we normally use <a> tag that contains image tag to show the image. But assume there are 100 images and you need to add hyperlink to every image. Putting 100 <a> tag with each image is time consuming and painful. But jQuery can make your task painless. So in this post, I will show to how to add HyperLink to images using jQuery.

jQuery provides a method named “wrap()“, which can be used to insert any HTML structure in set of matched elements. In simple words, if you want put wrapper around your div element then you can use wrap() method. For example, you have a div with ID “Child”.

<div id="Child"></div>

And want to wrap this div with any parent then you can use “wrap()” method to insert HTML.

$('#Child').wrap('<div id="Parent"></div>');


<div id="parent">
  <div id="child"></div>

Same way, we will use the wrap() method to insert hyperlink to image tag so that the image becomes clickable. See below.

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('img').each(function ()
     var currentImage = $(this);
     currentImage.wrap("<a href='" + currentImage.attr("src") + "' </a>");

In the above code, the wrap function wraps the anchor tag around each image with using the image source as Hyperlink for a tag. For demo, I have added “target=_blank” attribute so that it opens in a new tab/window.

See result below.

If you want to add same Hyperlink to every image then you can use below code. Just replace the URL (My blog URL) with your required URL.

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('img').wrap("<a href='<a title="" href="" target="_blank"></a>' </a>");
