Choosing (or Creating) Images Suited for Imagemapping

You can use any GIF or JPEG image for an imagemap, whether it's one you created or a copyright-free piece of clip art. The best image for an imagemap is one that's clearly and obviously divided into distinct regions.

After seeing the image, a visitor must instinctively expect different regions to lead to different places. If the image's regions are not clearly defined, a visitor might assume that the image is a picture link leading only one place and click it without carefully choosing a region. Or the visitor might not even realize that the picture contains any links and fail to exploit the useful tool you have so thoughtfully provided.
