Working with Image Maps






Working with Image Maps

After you create image maps, you can reshape hotspots, convert layer-based image maps to tool-based image maps, hide image maps if you need to work on another aspect of a Web page, or (of course) delete the image maps. Here’s the list from the kitchen sink:

  • Reshape tool-based hotspots by choosing the Image Map Select tool from the Toolbox. Then, select the hotspot that you want to reshape in the image window and drag the hotspot boundary handles to reshape the hotspot.

  • Convert a layer-based image map to a tool-based image map by using the Image Map Select tool to select the image map that you want to convert. Then, choose Promote Layer Based Image Map Area from the Image Map palette menu, as shown in Figure. Because only tool-based hotspots can be reshaped, you must convert a layer-based image map before you can reshape hotspots.

  • Duplicate an image map by using the Image Map Select tool to select the image map that you want to copy. Open the Image Map palette menu and choose Duplicate Image Map Area. A copy of the image map appears in the image window. You can then use the Image Map Select tool to move the duplicate image map to the place where you need it.

  • Hide image maps in the image window by choosing View>Show>Image Maps. Choose the Image Maps command again to view the image maps.

  • Delete an image map by using the Image Map Select tool to select the image map that you want to delete. Then, press Backspace/Delete.
