    need help on a hot spot

    cowboyretta
      Hi thanks for the help in advance.

      I am working on a picture and need to add a hot spot for a link to my web site. I put the hot spot in FW. When I preview it it works fine. But after I save it as a jpeg the link quit working. The picture is going in a craiglist add so it has to be in a picture fortmat. I am not real good with fireworks but know it better than I do photoshop. If you can help please give advice in easy to understand tips. Thanks so much,
      Loretta

          You can't save it as a JPEG with a hotspot. You need to export it as
          Images and HTML.

              I don't know, cowboyretta. I'm not familiar with the way Craigslist
              operates. There must be some instructions there, or some kind of help
              forum.

              It's a common misconception that hotspots can somehow be embedded in an
              image. That's not the case, however. The hotspot is part of the HTML
              that's exported with the image. If there is a way to upload the HTML to
              Craigslist, you would upload both the image and the HTML to the same
              location on the server.
