I want to say that the images are inside the links and can only be viewed when he or she visits the links.

The images are within links
The images are inside links
The images are embedded within links
The images are linked

I am concerned that the sentences above might indicate that the images are either just thumbnails or merely inside the anchor tags.

How should I construct the sentence If I want no chance for misinterpretation?

  • "Please visit/open the links to see the images." - "The images are available in the links"

  • I actually need to say something like "Saving images that can only be viewed by visiting each link is a hard job." Is there anyway to shorten the italicized portion of the sentence to be more concise?

  • Images are linked (to).

  • How about "Saving images to be visited by thumbnail links is ... "? Is this construction grammatically acceptable?

the images are linked seems like a good option, however is informal to the reader. As a native English speaker, it seems that the best option is the third, as you are saying that the images are connected to the page through those links.

  • "embedded images" are (embedded) directly in the page, so "following the link" is not necessary. Images accessible after clicking a link are LINKED, not EMBEDDED. Commented Apr 24, 2019 at 14:00
