    Hotspots, Slices, and Pop-Up Text

    spagonz
      Hello,

      I have the Macromedia Studio MX 2004 product, including Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash, and Freehand. I'd like to know the simplest way and tool to use (Fireworks? Flash? Dreamweaver?) to create what I call a pop-up bubble (or box) with a textual description inside when the user (ideally) mouses over (or not so ideally..'clicks on') a part of an illustration or mouses over other text (for example, textual captions). Please do a 'google' on 'Product Demos' and click on the 'Blackberry' link. You'll see a bunch of thumbnails of their products...click on any product. You'll immediately get a Flash 8 slide presentation show....but click on the 'interactive' button below (lower far right) and you'll see what I'm talking about with the text pop-ups...the creator chose to have the viewer mouse over text to get these...I'd also like to be able to mouse over parts/sectors of a graphic....

      I look forward to hearing from one and all.

      Much thanks!

          That was all done on Flash.
