Add a link to a image in the Webpart image
In the new web part image of the modern experience, it's impossible to add a link to the image. You should add this possibily, with an option to open "in / out the screen". Without that, it's now impossible now to put a "image / button" to open another page.
Available in my tenant as of today!

Basic web page functionality. This is really important.
This is such a basic necessity. Needless to mention image maps also.

At lease make the hero webpart more customizable or something. Currently the communication sites are somewhat lacking in customization featues!

Please add it. I've been using Wiki Page and tried Site Page instead and it is definitely easier to edit but it doesn't have that feature. I believe it is a must.

I can't believe that this only has 56 votes! Ditto to the "this is a no-brainer" and "this is Web 101" comments. If this isn't low-hanging fruit, I don't know what is!

This is absolutely necessary. Obviously quicklinks and hero are good web parts but using the image web part to build your own lay out adds much needed flexibility. I'm really surprised this really basic feature isn't already available.
Please add this

Totally agree with others. This should be a no-brainer. One of the ways to work around the generic look of the web parts is to create images with the look and feel you want but they Must be linkable!!
Microsoft this is basic stuff. In order to move forward and have this communications site as something we can use you need to make this happen. Otherwise its a no go.
This is Web 101, a must have for almost everyone, I would guess.

Glad someone else had this on their radar; was putting together a page using Web Parts and was surprised to find that I could not add a "button" to the page; no way to wrap a link to an image that I had uploaded, and no way to directly edit the HTML.
Please make this happen, Microsoft!
