How to make the homepage multicolumn images clickable links?

How can I made the multicolumn images on the homepage clickable?

At the moment they are just images and visitors can only click on the writing below to visit the link. I wish for the image to also link to the same place as the link below it.

 

My site is www.sketchlasercutting.com where you can see the 4 images in a row just below the scrolling marquee

 

I tried using this code, but it made the images huge and not fitting inside their frames -

 

{{ 'section-multicolumn.css' | asset_url | stylesheet_tag }}
<link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ 'component-slider.css' | asset_url }}" media="print" onload="this.media='all'">
<noscript>{{ 'component-slider.css' | asset_url | stylesheet_tag }}</noscript>

{%- style -%}
.section-{{ section.id }}-padding {
padding-top: {{ section.settings.padding_top | times: 0.75 | round: 0 }}px;
padding-bottom: {{ section.settings.padding_bottom | times: 0.75 | round: 0 }}px;
}

@media screen and (min-width: 750px) {
.section-{{ section.id }}-padding {
padding-top: {{ section.settings.padding_top }}px;
padding-bottom: {{ section.settings.padding_bottom }}px;
}
}
{%- endstyle -%}

{%- liquid
assign columns_mobile_int = section.settings.columns_mobile | plus: 0
assign show_mobile_slider = false
if section.settings.swipe_on_mobile and section.blocks.size > columns_mobile_int
assign show_mobile_slider = true
endif
-%}

Hi Kaiya,

Unfortunately adding a link to the image is not possible within the settings, the option simply does not exist.

When I add the code I mentioned then it is possible to add the link, however that breaks the image frame and the image becomes giant and cut off

Sorry I don’t understand what you mean?
