Hey Sherry69

You can never have embed a link in pure jpeg or png file.

It's game of HTML. Even the video, they saw on this link Embed hyperlink to jpg for Facebook posting did same mechanism.

In FaceBook & Twitter, you can do same by using opengraph. FaceBook and Twitter do provide opengraph facility.

In opengraph, you have to assign url at you hyperlinked page with meta opengraph.

Let's see an example :

In FaceBook :

In Twitter :

In case, if you need detail setup explanation then you can refer this link : http://www.wpexplorer.com/setup-open-graph-twitter-cards-wordpress/

Hope that helps!

Good luck.
