Using Cooliris to show photos. How to link from photos to separate webpage?

Asking for a business contact:

"I have embedded a Cooliris Express photo wall on our company website. On the site these photos have their own explanation pages (describing what's in the photo, etc.). How to create a link from the Cooliris photo wall to these explanation pages? Not the world's best coder, far from it, so if you can help please give a simple explanation. Thank you all very much!"

Hey, I asked the dev who works on it and he says:

"When you zoom in on a picture, there's a link-out button on each photo (unless you have especially asked the embed wall to disable it).
In your rss feed, you can customize what link the link-out button points to. Here's a simple feed with a single photo in it; the link-out for that photo points to www.google.com. This illustrates what the user wants to accomplish. Hope this helps.
