Learn how to add hyperlinked image maps to image assets.

Image Maps let you add one or more hyperlinked areas that function like other hyperlinks.

  1. Do any one of the following to open In-place Image Editor:

    • Using Quick Actions, tap the Edit icon that appears on an asset in the Card view. In the List view, select the asset and tap the Edit icon in the toolbar.


      Quick Actions is not available in the List view.

    • In the Card or List view, select the asset and tap the Edit icon on the toolbar.

    • Tap the Edit icon from the asset page.


  2. To insert an image map, tap the Launch Map icon from the toolbar.


  3. Select the shape of the image map. The hot-spot of the selected shape is placed on the image.


  4. Tap the hot-spot, and enter the URL and Alt text. From the Target list, specify where you want the image map displayed, for example the same tab, a new tab, or an iFrame. For example, enter as the URL, Adobe website as the Alt text, and specify New Tab from the Target list for the image map to open in a new tab.


  5. Tap the Confirm icon, and then tap the Finish icon from the toolbar to save the changes.


    To delete the image map, tap the hot-spot and tap the Delete icon.


  6. To view the image map, navigate to the asset details page, and hover the cursor over the image.


    If the Dynamic Media option is enabled, navigate to the Asset editor and tap the Map icon to view all the applied image maps.
