I am asking this question again, because I might not have been clear enough the first time. I am looking for code that will change an image/picture to another picture when the mouse enters the area of the picture. The picture should change back after the mouse leaves the area. Also, the images need to be linked to a different URL site. Please help!!

Do you want to change the whole image, or parts of an image? Either way the code I gave you has all the functionality you require. Just change the mouseMove() and paintApplet() methods to draw a new image, rather than red ovals.

As for linking to URLs, this is easy. You need a mouseDown() method:

public boolean mouseDown(Event evt, int x, int y)
{   if (area.inside(x, y))
    {   getAppletContext().showDocument(url);
        return true;
    }
    else
        return super.mouseDown(evt, x, y);
}

Where area is a Rectangle of pre-determined coordinates, and url is the URL you want to jump to.

If you build on the logic I gave you in the MouseMotion applet, you can generate an image map, where different parts of an image go to different URLs.

It might help to check out some of the on-line courses available, and buy a book. I've responded to your other question about this.
