Hypertext feature possible?
Can anyone tell me if there is a way of creating a hyperlink to and an e-mail or web address with the text feature in version 5?
I'm doing all updates for my site in Photoshop and would like this option instead of just plain text.

No. Hypertext isn't an embedded property of an image (although it may seem like it as you browse the net), it's external to it as part of the webpage's html text file. It's the other way around, the image is the object for the html code and the link is assigned to it.
Imageready can create html for links, but you then have the issue of how to use the code for your purposes. Imageready is now a module that's included with Photoshop 6.
Depending on what you want to accomplish, you may be better off using a web design program like Frontpage to create the links you need...

The other alternative is to use a simple text editor on your html page and add code as follows:
<a href="URL of the page you want to link to"><img src="URL of the image you want to show" alt="TEXT you want to show when the mouse points at the image" border="0">

Yet another way to add hyperlinks to images on a webpage is to use image maps. Server-side maps are older, and much much more tedious to create. Client-side maps tend to be easier and faster for the server. Check out:
