I'd like to introduce WordPress bloggers to a plugin I just launched called Image Hotspotter. It allows you to create interactive image maps in your WordPress posts and pages with a rich, attractive user interface.
The plugin has a click-and-drag interface allowing you to easily create hotspots in an image. You can set each hotspot to give your blog readers a few options. While hovering over a hotspot, a custom HTML box can appear next to your mouse cursor, and upon clicking a hotspot, either a URL will open or a custom HTML pop-up box will appear.
This allows the aesthetic blogger to create very elegant image-based content. Check it out at ImageHotSpotter.com!
