QueenKathleen Posted April 8, 2014 Share Posted April 8, 2014 Hi everyone. I'm new to Paint.NET, so please bear with me if I'm asking something really obvious, but I've been searching this forum (and the internet), and I can't find what I need. So I'm hoping someone more experienced can show me the way. Perhaps I'm using the wrong term? I have an image I'm working on (a diagram of the life cycle of the Monarch butterfly, if you're interested) to put into my website/blog. I want to have it so readers can click on the pictures in each part of the diagram to be taken to the relevant page. Most of the pictures (my own photos) are contained in a circle or ellipse, so I would like that people could click anywhere in that ellipse and they're clicking the link to the relevant page. Someone told me this is called image mapping and that you can do it in Paint.NET. She referred me to a YouTube video by sabrownhundred, posted in 2009, in which Simon demonstrates (very quickly and silently!) how to do it. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hwxpYm4yg4] After viewing, pausing, and rewinding several times, I noticed he was using a plugin. Having recognised Simon's name from browsing this forum, I figured the plugin concerned must be one of his, so I downloaded and installed his plugin pack, but it turns out it was not one of those. So I have searched the plugin list and any mention of image mapping on this forum, but I can't find anything. Could somebody please point me in the right direction? This is a common feature in websites, so I feel information about how to do it should be 'out there', and I'm feeling really frustrated to not be able to find it. (I won't post my diagram yet unless someone who can help me really needs it, as I've (so far) been working in high resolution, then Save As... and shrink the image down to the size I need when I've finished - and I'm not quite done yet.) Many thanks in advance. Kathleen Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
