I was recently notified that my question was edited. It was a fine edit.

I was reviewing the edit history and noticed that the image was changed yet it remains exactly the same as far as I can tell.

I ended up trying to click the image in my question and it is no longer click-able.

Example with click-able image

Not sure when this happened but did something change with Markdown?

We can see the Markdown changes by clicking "side by side markdown" in the revision history.

latest revision

The image appears to have been modified in the "side-by-side" view because part of the Markdown that produces the image was changed: the description, which is the alt attribute for the image.

Like text, images can be inside link markup. Interestingly, image markup looks a lot like link markup in Markdown; a preceding ! before the opening bracket makes an image instead of a link. The above image has this Markdown:

[![latest revision][1]][1]

The image embed is provided by ![latest revision][1]; the wrapping around that makes it clickable. (The link target is the same as the image source, the #1 URL at the bottom of my post's source.)

Looking through the revision history of the post with the non-clickable image, I don't see any revision where the image was a link. You could wrap it in the link markup, if you like.

Tip: you can see the full Markdown source for a post by clicking the "source" link in the revision history, or by starting an edit.
