Editor's review

Easily make complex image maps with JavaScript mouseover hints, frame targeting, image previewing, link and mouseover memory, and lots more.

Features: Quite often you need a compound image that gas different parts and each needs to be linked to unique URLs. CoffeeCup Image Mapper helps create such image maps easily. It has mouseover HTML capability. How it makes the job is via a image map wizard. This wizard can create the links to different pieces of the map easily. It can handle interlaced and non-interlaced GIF, JPEG as well as progressive JPEG and the first frame of an animated GIF. Users can choose from three different shape methods for mapping those hard-to-reach spots in a complex image.

CoffeeCup Image Mapper`s wizard guides you through the creation process of mapping your images in a few easy steps. View the HTML code for your image map generated as you type. The WYSIWYG editor helps you visualize quite easily. Frame targeting, image previewing, link and mouseover memory are some additional features offered in the current version. Zoom in zoom out feature lets you place links in the right area of the image. Rulers and mouse guide help too. If you do need to image you do that without losing the links/map information already entered. Code preview is available when creating the map. You can create mouseover and alt-txt for the image areas.

Overall: A very convenient tool for creating image maps. It is easy to use and quite rich in features.

Publisher's description

CoffeeCup Image Mapper allows you to specify multiple links (or hotspots) to specific locations of an image and point them to a document or website. Create mouseover text, ALT text, links and more. Supports JPG, PNG, and GIF image formats!
So how does it work? Let's say you're selling furniture with several pieces up for grabs. Showcase the items in a picture. Then using the design tools, draw an outline on a specific item and assign a website address to it. Now when someone clicks on a piece of furniture, they are redirected to the web page associated with it for more information.
Apply the same technique to other types of images like Maps, corporate team photos, flowcharts, art galleries and more. Pretty awesome right? :)
Responsive Image Maps are Friendly for Mobile Users
With over 51% of traffic coming from mobile devices, it's important that you update your image maps to be responsive. This makes them easier, faster, and more functional to navigate for viewers on smaller screens.
Image maps that are responsive will adjust link coordinates appropriately based on the display width. However, one thing to keep in mind is that mobile devices do not allow for mouseovers or tooltips on hover/mouseover. Because of this, you will need to creatively re-think how your image map works so users will instinctively know how to use it.
How can you do that? Easy. Make your image map more functional on mobile devices by displaying a "Key" o"Legend" near the map (or even add it to the image itself) which points out textually what they can touch on. For example, here is the furniture catalog that showcases some furniture for sale in the catalog. We placed text below the image to describe the 8 items. An additional indicator was also applied to the source image. These aids help mobile viewers know what is touchable. By touching any of those items, you will be re-directed to a page with where you can browse the catalog for similar items.
