If I took an image and say sliced it up into 25 different pieces, each piece linking somewhere, is this looked upon badly?
Obviously I wouldn't mean for users to click on them and it would be on the bottom of the page probably.
Thanks for the help...

If in doubt, follow your instinct.

If you are really wanting to have a collection of links pointing to every page in your site, I would suggest creating a site map.
While the act of slicing up images to create graphic links is fine (many sites use graphics within links), I would not recommend using _only_ graphic links, and for those links you should be sure to include meaningful alt="" text. The SEs like finding & following text links the most, so using only graphic links could prove to be a bit of a hinderance.
As for the bit about not meaning for users to click on them, I have to ask: if they are not meant to be used, why put them there? IMHO, the only links that should be on a page are those that are intended to be used by a visitor. Anything else could be considered spammy.

Doing anything for just the search engines and not your visitors is never a good idea.

The problem with placing links at random behind an image is that people may click on them and not know where they are going. It will lead to a confusing site and a bad experience for the end user.

Unless your image were, for example, a map of the world/ country/ city or whatever & used to navigate to pages by town/city/country or whatever....thus adding to the users experience.
Like all above me have already stated, why not have visible + text links?
This will benefit both spiders & visitors...? Text links count for so much more & adds loads of page weight....?
