Lesson 15. Creating Links within an Image > About slices and image maps

About slices and image maps

The first method is to create slices. Slices are areas in an image that you define based on layers, guides, or precise selections in the image, or by using the Slice tool. When you define slices in an image, Photoshop or ImageReady creates an HTML table or cascading style sheet to contain and align the slices. If you want, you can generate and preview an HTML file that contains the sliced image along with the table or cascading style sheet.

An image map is also an image area that serves to support a hypertext link. The controls for making image maps appear only in Adobe ImageReady; so you must jump over to ImageReady to do this work if the file is open in Photoshop. ImageReady creates both client-side image maps and server-side image maps. Unlike slices, which are always rectangular, image maps can be any shape.
