I am trying to create my own web imagemap editor.  I wondered if someone knew of a component that could help me.  I need it to let me load a bitmap and draw out areas and title them.  The coordinates will be saved with the picture, and when you load up the data and picture again then it will mark the picture again accordingly.

Any Ideas?

here is one:
mapper.zip (164,094 bytes) A small handy program that writes html files containing ImageMaps for you. You write in the coordinates, and a couple of other options and the program fixes the rest! (ver. 1.0, added 1/4/98, Source included, distribute freely w/no mods, inc. readme.txt.)

Thanks for the comments, however, my project is a little different than a regular imagemap.  I just need a component that can let me draw the boxes and give me the coordinates automatically of the picture.  I need to be able to store those coordinates however I wish.  I do not want a component that automatically creates a webpage, because I don't want a webpage as the end result.

why not just use a paintbox and mouse events?

Well, I have tried using a TPanel with a TImage on it.  I tried PixelPack, but couldn't ever successfully get it installed.  It has some components that conflicts with other components that I use.  Anyway, I do have it working for the most part, I was just hoping for a component that had all sorts of neat features, like rubber-banding when selecting the next section to mark, etc.

I will accept InThe because he did have suggestions for ImageMap, which is what I asked for, even though it wasn't what I really needed, but it might be an answer to someone else.
