Okay, so if I'm building a website and I want a set of pictures to sit adjacent to each other, and on top of each other, how would I go about doing that? When I say adjacent, I mean that if one picture is at 0,32 and is 100x100 I want the next picture's coordinates to be 100,32. When I say on top, I mean that if the same picture is at 0,32 and is 100x100 I want the picture directly below it to be at 0,132. I tried using tables, but there's always a space between the cells, no matter what I set cell spacing and padding to.

Would it just be easier to use an image map?

That should really work if you've set cellspacing and cellpadding to zero. Here's an example I just tried. Hope this helps.

edit: TDC messes up the html code. Obviously the rounded brackets below should be angled (< and > ) symbols.


(table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0")
(tr)
(td)(img src="pic.jpg" width="100" height="100")(/td)
(td)(img src="pic.jpg" width="100" height="100")(/td)
(td)(img src="pic.jpg" width="100" height="100")(/td)
(/tr)
(tr)
(td)(img src="pic.jpg" width="100" height="100")(/td)
(td)(img src="pic.jpg" width="100" height="100")(/td)
(td)(img src="pic.jpg" width="100" height="100")(/td)
(/tr)
(tr)
(td)(img src="pic.jpg" width="100" height="100")(/td)
(td)(img src="pic.jpg" width="100" height="100")(/td)
(td)(a href="#")(img src="pic.jpg" width="100" height="100" border="0")(/a)(/td)
(/tr)
(/table)


Also remember that if you want those images to be links, set the image border to be zero.

eg:

(a href="#")(img src="pic.jpg" width="100" height="100" border="0")(/a)

you might wanna try your hand at <div >s.. i'm no expert on them, but i know you can set their x and y positions directly.

Nim, that worked for when they are all the same size. Mine doesn't work though. I don't know why it doesn't work. Maybe because the pictures aren't all uniform in size, or because there are empty cells in between pictures?

EDIT: Question, can I determine the size of each cell seperately?

Ah, now I think I understand what you mean. I didn't know they were all different sizes. No, you can't resize individual cells. But if you want a collage of overlapping images, the easiest way to do it would be to use an imagemap. You can also use the div technique but I find that fiddly.

or just make them all the same size

Okay next question. How do I use an imagemap to make different images overlap?

You don't. You make a single image composed of all the images, then specify coordinates for each sub-image.

I know that much, but then how do I make images overlap, if not with an imagemap?
