All apps listed here, unless otherwise noted, refer to the KDE Specifc version, but have been tested in Gnome as well.

KImage Map Editor

Screenshot-KImageMapEditor

Here’s a simple to use and very useful image map editor.  Drop an image or existing HTML file into the app window and draw the part of the image you want to map.  You can even define map parts of the image using a polygonal area tool.

Even more impressive is that you can define all the javascript functions that should occur when the selected part of the image is effected.  Onclick, OnMouseOver, etc… Tested and works well in KDE and Gnome.

How to Install

From a terminal window type   sudo apt-get install kimagemapeditor

Klinkstatus
