Adding hyperlinks to areas of a jpeg

Nov 20, 2008 5:41 PM

I want to use a big jpeg as the background to a simple sitemap webpage, and then add buttons with hyperlinks on it. How do I do this?

I have CS3 Dreamweaver and Photoshop, and I'm a beginner.

many thanks

    Adobe Help gives advice on "Image Maps" where you make an image with hot-spots in it that are clickable. That might be a starting place. I haven't ever used this idea but I'll bet there are tutorials to Google. If you want the map as a background image with content over the top, then you could try setting a a background image in a CSS rule on the < body> element in your HTML. Then you would build your page in the way you want.

    I hope that helps but I will add the caveat that I'm a novice!

    You cannot add hyperlinks or image maps to a background image. Further,
    aligning page content to a background image is like nailing jelly to the
    wall. It will fail.

    Your path is a forlorn one. It's not the right way to go. Consider this -
