    How to find the coords of an image map?

    I need to make an image map, but I'd rather not find the coordinates of it by trial and error. Is there an easy way to find out what they need to be? I just need them for some rects and then two polys. Any help would be appreciated.

    Download some image mapping software and use that.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Here is how I did it.

    Go to this webpage:

    http://www.htmlgoodies.com/tutors/imagemap.html

    You need to be in IE for this to work

    Follow the instructions and make an image map. You can roughly get the numbers you want for your image mapping from the status bar of IE when you move your mouse over the image.(bottom left). Then use those numbers in the image map, it may need some adjustments, but better than pure guessing.

    Hope that helped.
