Personally I think it’s a lot easier to download a small program for free to do your image mapping for you, but it’s up to you. I have quite a few image mapping tutorials, so try them all to find out which way you like best. Image mapping is where you have part of an image clickable; you can click it and go to a menu or another site; an example is at the bottom of this page.

Step 1

Open the image you want to map in PSP. Make sure it’s already saved with the file name you want.

Step 2

Go to File > Export > Image Mapper, and then follow the instructions on this pic below, starting with drawing your shapes.

Step 3

Once you’ve clicked the eye button, a preview of your image should appear in your Internet browser. Right click the page that comes up and select ‘View Source’. Then copy all the code and paste into a page of your web site. Make sure you put the page in the same folder as your image, or it won’t work unless you alter the image name.
