To get this to work you simply need to add an onClick to your HREF command which will then call your Javascript function.  To make any image clickable it must be within an HREF tagset under HTML.

Try the following:-

<A HREF="" onClick="yourfunction()"><IMG SRC="imagename.gif"></A>

Hope this helps
