This manual page documents briefly the imaptool command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

imaptool is a tool that helps in the creation of client-side image maps.

For more information on client-side image maps refer see -

imaptool is pretty easy to use.

Invoke imaptool on a .gif or .jpeg image. Click on 'Shape' and choose a shape (Available shapes - Rectangle, Circle and Polygon). Click on the image and drag the mouse to enclose the required area. The HTML tag for this client-side image map area is now in your X buffer.

Once you have enclosed the required area, change to your favorite editor (running in another window) and click Button 2 to paste the client-side image map tag.
