I have created a KML file containing several thousand placemarks. The description contains a simple HTML tag referencing a location on local disk, pointing to a JPG photograph. The photos display in the popup balloons properly.
I would like for users of Google Earth 7 to be able to click on the displayed photo and have their default JPG file type handler application open and display the photo file.
I have tried enclosing the
<img> tag with an
<a href> tag, using the notation
href="file://photos\technician01\photo1.jpg", but I can't get the behaviour I am looking for (no external viewer is ever spawned).
Is there a way to accomplish this?
Update Here's a complete block of HTML I have attempted to achieve the described functionality:
<a href=" photos\technician01\August 19, 2013\DSCN0596.jpg"> <table style="width:800px;height:600px"> <tr> <td> <img src="photos\technician01\August 19, 2013\DSCN0596.jpg" style="height:auto; width:100%"/> </td> </tr> </table> </a>`
