Image map- highlight on mouse-over?

Can Gimp create a highlight on mouse-over when an image map is created and put on a web page?

Maybe that's a thing only an html editor like Kompozer can do?

Any ideas?

I think you need 2 images, one normal, the other activated on "mouse over"

Not part of the image map function.

Just create your highlight image and activate it with the mouse over

Owen is right. An HTML image map only causes links to appear on a single image. You do need additional images, or a way of causing a single image to appear in different locations to produce a "highlight" when the pointer moves over the image.

If you are a KompoZer user the folks at:

http://wysifauthoring.informe.com/forum/

will prove very helpful. Post a link to a page on that forum, that shows your image and how you want the highlights to appear and you should get some good advice. You may not even need to use an "image map". A background image with images that appear on hover may be more efficient.

(My site doesn't cover this issue - but may be helpful in other ways!)

Here's a useful tutorial I did on rollovers once, it's the same idea.

The alternate images I did were all done with gimp.

That's pretty neat. The fun part will be figuring it out for my page.

Thanks.
