    Because I need my website done in flash, because I tried doing multiple links on one picture, on different areas, along with text on one side, with HTML, and it didn't work.

    So, the next best thing is Flash, of course, but, maybe the thing can be coded in HTML, but I dunno.

    Here's the picture with how I want it to be set up:

    Also, if the links thing (if done in flash) could pop down, that would be cool.

    You don't need flash for doing links in parts of pictures.
    All you need is javascript. I think it's "image mapping", but I wouldn't swear to it.
    It's been so long, I'd have to check out my book which is at work.

    And I'm not sure what you mean about "pop down" but sounds like a roll over thing, which is also javascript.

    After looking it up, it's not javascript.
    It is called imagemapping. You would probably want a Client-Side based imagemap and will need an imagemapper program. I got mine for free while in school, but it looks like the site is charging $10.
    Check it out at [link=http://www.boutell.com/mapedit/] mapedit [/link]

    and tucows.com has a couple of shareware if you wanted to see if it's going to do what you want before you buy one.

    It can actually be done with just paint - it displays the true co-ordinates of your cursor, and once you plug that in, it will then use those ref points to set the active areas of the image. This sets a rectangular active area within the image - you can also use shape=circ for a circle, with the center co-ord specified then the radius in pixels (i.e. 167,22,30) or use shape=poly for an irregular polygon, with each of the co-ords mapped out. (See the example below)

    I would recommend [link=http://www.boogiejack.com/html_tutorials.html]BoogieJack's[/link] website - under the webmaster section. It has great HTML tutorials.

    EDIT: the main page seems to be down - but the link has been edited to take you directly to the tutorials.
