How to make Images Unclickable in Blogger

Welcome back! A lot of bloggers would want to know how to make images unclickable in a Blogger blog. Firstly, why the need to have unclickable images?
Two reasons :
1. To cater to your whims and fancies.
2. Because Blogger provides upto 1 GB of storage for images.
Now if your blog is solely intended for images, (basically, photographers, photo editors and artists) and you post high clarity images, HD stuff all the time; then beware!
