Hi all,Maybe i'm being impatient here but i just started doing the htlm tutorial and i can't seem to find out how to figure Coordinates in a image. If some one can either point me to or explain this to me i would appreciate it! i should be more specific, is there a way to over lay a image with Coordinates?Thanks in advance :)

do you have a program that allows you edit images?
no i don't is there one that you recommend? I do have a copy of dreamweaver but, i haven't installed it yet. The reason for that is because i want to absorb all the information before using a program that really just does everything for me. (Although i'm not sure DW can even do the overlay for imgs.)A program that alot of people i know use is Photoshop but, i really don't wanna pay $50 or whatever is cost currently for it. Atleast not until i know ill put it to good use. If there is a Free program out there that will allow me to essentially mess around. Then that would be Ideal! Edited by Arc-Winter

A fast way to see coordinates. Create a test document. The body element will contain code that looks like this:

<a href="#"><img ismap="ismap" src="myimage.jpg"></a>

If your browser has a status bar showing, then running your mouse over the image should display its coordinates there. They will be continuously updated as you move. So just point your mouse at a spot and write down the numbers. Easy.(I think some browsers may not display like this anymore. I don't remember. I'm using Firefox at the moment, and my status bar is visible, and I can see the coordinates just fine.)
