I am fairly new to coding and wanted advice on how I can go about doing 2 things:
1) Turning a series of images into background (non clickable) images and have the images change when hovered on, respectively.
2) Making these background images link to other pages.
Here is a perfect example of what I mean: http://www.craigearl.co.uk/
I have checked the source code but was not able to figure out where the key information was as to how this effect was achieved.
One of the reasons I want to achieve this is because I noticed, and I might be wrong, that websites with images turned into background images tend to load faster. Let me know if thats right as well.
Thanks in advance for your help
