    1. Yes, that was my intention. It is a screenshot of an example of what the code could look like.
      You actually need to generate that code using the Image Maps program first. This blog post is Step #2.

      Here is a link to my other blog post “How to Create Clickable Graphics With Image Maps Without a Subscription” that explains how to generate that code using the Image Maps program: https://oh365eh.itgroove.net/2014/08/20/create-clickable-graphics-with-image-maps-without-subscription/

      I apologize that my blog post was not clear! I hope the updates I made to the wording have helped.

  1. Hello!

    Thank you very much for this tutorial (and the other two that complete it). Very pragmatic and useful!

  2. SharePoint Image Maps is the SharePoint Add-in to create interactive images with eye-catching content from within SharePoint. Images contained within a Picture Library will have the option to create an Image Map directly from the image’s Context Menu. You can even set the content text to be taken from a SharePoint List for easy updates. The generated Image Map is fully responsive and optimized to work across all devices.
