Image Hotspot Links / Easy Arrangement. WordPress

I have a client who needs to be able to easily arrange images of his work on his site and also link each one to a lightbox.

Wordpress isn't really good enough at arranging images in the way he wants.... unless you go into code etc. which isn't an option.

The first question is, is it possible to easily hotspot link parts of images? (if so he would be able to upload the image layouts already put together and then link individual parts to the lightbox for each image). I've already looked around and there doesn't seem to be an easy way to do this - without code - but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If this isn't possible does anyone have any other suggestions of easy ways to achieve such layouts?

(there are a few examples attached).

these things are rather difficult to achieve without a lot of code (at least behind them). I think some clever shortcodes would be the best way to go here. Or page templates combined with custom fields for the images.

you should use "Jquery tiles" for that.

Too much code I'm afraid.
