Make clickable pictures look just like real navigation buttons

Hello,

 

I inserted in my App screens the picture of a little house and made it clickable to navigate back to the home menu.

 

This works fine, however when the clicker comes over the picture it does not turn into a little hand, just as it does for real buttons, so my picture does not really seem clickable.

 

It there a way to make this "little hand" appear over clickable pictures?

We actually did a workaround for the lack of the little hand by having the border of the image change to a Red border that's "2" thick when the user hovers over it. This makes it "pop" a little more letting them know it's a button to click and not just a static image.

 

 Some more info:

 

Image properties:

BorderColor: RGBA(0, 0, 0, 0)

BorderThickness: 2

HoverBorderColor: Red

I know this is an old post, but I found a better solution. Place the picture where you want the button, then create a button the same size and place on top of it. Remove the text and set all fills to blank with RGBA(0,0,0,0). Assign your actions to the blank button. It doesn't work to put the picture on top of the button. The button must be on top to get the hand on mouse-over.

I was going to suggest the same thing, but setting to full transparenc. This is a more suitable solution than the accepted solution in my opinion, but only the OP can decide that.
