Creating Hot Spots in Emails

So I dropped an image into Dreamweaver from Photoshop, and I'm wanting to create HotSpots so that when customers click on certain images they are then taken to certain URLs. I built the image and input a link, however when I drop it into Salesforce Marketing Cloud's email studio it has the link for the entire image and not just the Hotspots. Anyone have an idea of what I'm doing wrong or links to resources regarding HotSpots? As you can probably tell I'm very new to this so any help is greatly appreciated.

Image Maps are a bad idea for several reasons.  Mostly because they are not responsive. 

Image Map Support in HTML Email

If you must use image links, slice them up in Photoshop and save each graphic separately.  Don't forget to add ALT text to each image  for the email clients that suppress images for security reasons.

Thanks! As my focus is mainly around emails, I'll be properly using Dreamweaver and its functionalities as how they relate to Photoshop. I've been looking for some good Dreamweaver CC 2018 tutorials but haven't found any. Any thoughts or links that could point me in the right direction?

DW is web page authoring software not email creation software.  Emails are nothing like modern web pages.

There are no tutorials I know of for creating Emails in DW CC.  You will need coding skills and a good understanding of what works and doesn't work in email clients like Outlook, Gmail, Windows Mail, etc....

Best advice:  Start with an industry tested, table-based  Email Template.  See link below.
