I spent 3 hours looking on line and trying many imagemap programs to help another member and thought to start it's own thread because it is simply the best and easiest to use.

Meracl ImageMap Generator is a program which with ease lets you make clickable images - so called image maps. Easy imagemap generator for images with the ability to click on any part of a an image and have either a new window open and a redirect to the URL of your choice or to have it open in the same window.

I found this simple to use FREE program I spent under an hour learning how to use it and writing the step by step tutoria I have on my links page. Under 20 minutes to make an imagemap and upload to my site and the rest was spent making the tutorial easy for everyone. Take a look and scroll down and click on Santa for an example of what you can do...

It is sooooo easy...

Happy site building

I just can't wait to hear from others how easy it is to use...

Oh by the way for whoever wishes to know the programmer has given carte blanche to whoever wishes to use, publish the download file to their own site and transfer to others the program.

Actually a good person out there huh.

I hope that everyone enjoys it. ;)

Oh to add to this

I was not sure which url you had to copy into the url adress.

The one when working on your page or clicking preview page and copying the url in the new pop up window for the specific link

Urg sorry for posting again. I removed the mapping for now form my site so you wont be able to see what went wrong. I believe it has something to do with the urls.

Is anyone using this image-mapping program? I just downloaded it and attempted to open it, but cannot get it to work. I'd love to be able to use it, but am stymied for the moment.

I have used it plenty Keara. It is very basic but works well.
You can see an image map in action here (literally a map) http://travelsa.cc/map-wc.php

Hello Keara

I have not used this particular program. Here's another possibility which might work. I have not tried it so I cannot attest if it really works.

I hope that helps!

Hi Ed, I'd like to make an image map from a diagram, but when I go to your link I can't seem to find the Santa part as mentioned to click on - "Take a look and scroll down and click on Santa for an example of what you can do... "
Please assist. Thanks.
