in your href put something like this:


Then somewhere on your page:

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function verifyDelete() {
    if (confirm("Are you sure you want to delete this image?")) {
       return true;
    } else {
       return false;

You can read more about the confirm function here:
