Hour 14. Graphical Links and Imagemaps > Mapping Regions Within an Image

Mapping Regions Within an Image

To make any type of imagemap, you need to figure out the numerical pixel coordinates of each region within the image that you want to turn into a clickable link. An easy way to do this is to open the image with Paint Shop Pro and watch the coordinates at the bottom of the screen as you use the rectangle selection tool to select a rectangular region of the image (see Figure 14.4). When the mouse button is down, the coordinates at the bottom of the screen show both the top-left and bottom-right corners of the rectangle. When the mouse button isn't down, only the x,y position of the mouse is shown.

Figure 14.4. Paint Shop Pro can easily give the coordinates for imagemap regions without mucking about with special image-mapping utilities.
