Maybe try graphicx and hyperref.

(I use only latex, but a quick google search suggests to me
that graphicx also works with eplain.)

I'm not fluent with plain, but with pdflatex this markup
works:

\href{http://this.url.foo/}{\includegraphics[width=0.15\linewidth]{this-img}}

where "this-img" can have suffix jpg, png, or pdf.

I had expected it to work as well with regular latex (since
I also have "this-img.eps"), but for some reason my dvi
reader doesn't seem to grok the link even though the display
is boxed like a link.
