got one fer ya'

I want to use a picture, but I want only one location on that picture to be linked....

I've seen it done on webpages, but can you set a picture up in zones?:confused:


ie: the back door on this limousine

EDIT:
was thinking an image could be set up in layers, and have a "behind the pic" layer active to link with

Can't you just put and action button where you want it, shape it, and make it completely clear?

Divide the picture in to 2 parts and just link the top half.

Other option is using CSS (cascading style sheets) place text over the picture which is linked while the picture itself isnt.

Hey Milk....really easy to do. I taught FrontPage for seven years ;) You simply need to draw a "hotspot" on the photo where you want it. You can either make it a circle, square, or you can design your own shape. Once you click on the photo in FP, you should see your "pictures" toolbar along the bottom...you will find the hotspot tool in there. I would show you in more detail, but I am in the middle of uploading my 2.5 GB web site to a new hosting company...(taking WAY too long!)

email me if you have a question...I can give you more details. virtualwi@gmail.com

open the back door of the bottom pic;)


edit:
I did it by using the TEXT button, moving it to where I wanted it(resizing & leaving it blank), double-clicking to bring up HYPERLINK properties, and adding the hyperlink I wanted.

note: the buttonized look of the bottom pic has nothing to do with it's hyperlink
