Our send to a friend works fine..., but it sends a link of the products picture. Not a link to the products page. How can I change that? Obviously I would like people to click on the link they receive and direct them to the product page.

First, you need to check that which template is being sent for the Email to friend functionality. To check:

  1. Login to admin panel and go to System >> Configuration >> Catalog (Email to a friend).
  2. Under Email Templates section, check the value of Select Email Template.

If the current template is other than Send product to a friend (Default Template from Locale), then check the customized template with the selected name under System >> Transactional Emails.

There must be a template with the same name which was selected in the previous step.

If not, then you need to check the default email template from locale (app/locale/{locale_Name}/template/email/product_share.html).

In your case there may be something like {{var product_image}}

instead of <a href="{{var product_url}}">{{var product_name}}</a>

Please let me know if the solution works for you.
