Adobe PhotoShop and Corel PhotoPaint both contain tools for creating image maps, aka hotspots.

OK, I've been doing online help for a long time and back in the Windows 95
dark ages, there was a SHED Editor that allowed authors to create a
segmented hypergraphic -- basically an image on which you could 'draw'
shapes (usually rectangles) and assign each shape a URL. The shapes didn't
appear on the image. But, if you clicked the image on one of the invisible
shapes you would launch a popup window with the URL's content displayed.
