Image maps can seem daunting to someone who has never built one. The easiest way is to use a graphics program with image mapping capabilities. If you are using a graphics program, tell us which one and we may be able to tell you how to do this easily!
Common programs: Photoshop (with ImageReady), Paint Shop Pro, Canvas, Xara X, Serif DrawPlus or PhotoPlus, plus many others. If you don't have a suitable program, you can download Serif's PhotoPlus 5 for free, and it has a fully functional image mapping tool. Go here to check it out :


If you need more help, just ask!

Homesite also has a handy image map feature.

Frontpage has one too. It isn't the greatest but it gets the job done.

theres a good program called MapEdit (http://www.mapedit.com), it's been ages since i used it though...

I find it more "useable" to split the image up into a number of smaller ones, as events (such as onclick, onmouseover...) dont work in many browsers on image maps (please correct me if im wrong ;)), if you think thats a better way to go then check out this thread (http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=770)

happy coding :thumbsup:

There is also this site (http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_images.asp) if you want to learn about image maps. It doesn't explain them a whole lot, just gives you good examples. I just thought maybe it would be easier. Oh and the examples are towards the bottom of the page. Good Luck!!:cool:

Fireworks and Dreamweaver both have full mapping capabilities (incl standard Square, Oval and a nifty hand drawn "polygon" tool as well).

Just so you know, you've replied to a guy who's been spamming his name and associated backlinks on various old posts for a few days using different usernames. This thread is a month short of 6 years old.

If he hasnt figured out how to make an image map after 6 years I dont think anything we can say now will help his soul.
