Quick implementation. My part of the code is almost completely free and may be (ab)used by anyone for any purpose, under the 1 restriction that it will not harm anyone and will not harm me in particular. For the parts I stole from the ImageMapPlus plugin, which is actually a way cooler plugin, please read the ImageMapPlus page.

If you have problems with this plugin, please contact me at
