Hi everyone,

I'm new to dreamweaver, and though I'm getting on ok on the whole, one thing I'm trying to do has really got me puzzled. If anyone could help I'd be really greatful.

I wold like to make a rollover link within a large background image. Sort of like a hotspot, but I want the hotspot map to change appearance when rolled over. Can anyone please help with this?

Thanks a million

PS. I'm using Dreamweaver MX

Making an image map is easy

Insert the image in a page. Click on the image if it is not already selected.

Make sure your properties panel is expanded to show the image map tools. Name your image map in the Map field, using a unique name.

Select a tool (square, circle, shape) and draw an area on the image that you want to make "clickable". Repeat this process for all the areas you want to make into hotspots

After adding a hotspot, the image will contain a shaded area You can adjust the size of the hotspot by using black arrow tool, and clicking and dragging the corners.

The Properties panel will change to display the hotspot characteristics. Fill in the appropriate fields, to link to another page on your web site or to a page at different Web site.
