    So, in the editor I can see that when I make a picture into a hyperlink a small blue arrow shows up at the bottom right of the pic.
    I like. I think it makes it easier to tell it's a link and not just an image.
    But when I publish the cool blue arrow goes away.
    Can I stop that from happening?

    Take a screenshot of the image with the blue arrow and replace the original with it.

    The finished page viewer's cursor will change from the pointer to the gloved pointy finger when they mouse over the image (just like it does with other links), so there is not really a need to identify linked images with the little arrow. If it's a link to a bigger version of the picture, you can always write "click image for bigger version" below it, that might be a little clearer if you want the viewer to know what the link actually does.

    It's a good tenant of web usability to make sure links stand out in some way. That way users don't end up playing "search for the links".
