    I'm a big fan of "fake image maps", where you cut up the image and table it all back together. My reasons:
    -Usually a faster load time as each piece is a smaller file size.
    -You can put alt attributes in the image tags thus adding navigation as the images are loading.
    -alt tags are read by some bots, adding to your keyword density.
    -maybe a few other reasons, but I'm tired.

    One not so incredible tutorial: http://htmlgoodies.earthweb.com/tutors/fakemap.html

    and I use Shoestring Dicer to do the cutting and it even produces an HTML table to help you put it all back together: http://www.ziplink.net/~shoestring/dicer01.htm

    HTH,

    That shoestring dicer is excellent, WM.

    How about adding it to Daves resources database? I use Macromedia Fireworks to cut up my images. What a polaver! This thing will save me hours of work! Thank you!

    You are looking for a tutorial on imagemaps?

    Heres a good site -
    http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/96/40/index2a.html?tw=authoring


    If you prefer, I could give you some quick tips and examples to get you going, but your post mentioned that you would like to work it out for yourself. You will have no problem doing so, its easy, but are you sure I cant give you some code?

    Glad you like it Quiet Dean. I used it a lot on one project where I was handed a non-web graphic artist who just had to make these monster 65kb+ files for a navigation bar....

    I don't have Fireworks...Photoshop and an HTML editor. I am slowly making friends with the graphics.

    I think I may have mentioned in another thread another fav freeware program of mine: http://www.whitsoftdev.com/downloads/unfreez.html , unFREEz, a little (tiny) gif animator. You gotta make your own gifs, and optimize each frame yourself, but I just love this little (tiny) program. It was far more useful to me than banner crafter. I need to put links to both of these on my site as well.

    later,
