Hi--Merry Christmas, and for the aethiests/agnostics, Happy Wednesday.

Anyway, I have a powerpoint slide of my state. The counties are outlined in it. It's a beautiful map. I would like to use this map on a website, and make the counties clickable. What's the best way for me to do that? it's a wordpress site.

Thanks
D

I think the cleanest way would be to export the image and create an image map.  But you can do this in powerpoint.

Are the counties separate images?  If so, you can create a hyperlink to the image.  Right click > Action Settings >Hyperlink > To URL > Enter URL.

IF it is one giant image, I think you have to make an image map.

I get what you are asking for have you considered Google Maps?
Did you want these access points to open to that town?state? or just a photo
