When you create a Tumblr photo post, you can include a hyperlink in the Description field of the post. You can also include a click-through link that opens a new page when the user clicks the image. Disable the link in the post description by editing the original post. You can also disable the photo’s click-through link while the post is in Edit mode. However, you can only edit posts that you have created.
