    Can any one help me in this problem. I always use Adobe Imageready for doing rollover affect and every time I do 4 and up rollovers links it gives me an error. Not only that but the affect take a long time for it to work. For example please check out this site that I'm doing for a friend ( http://gmora1.tripod.com/Sample%20We...dex_sample.htm ). Is there other software for doing rollovers of links. I have the source as an attachment file. I hope you can help me with anoying error. Thanks in advance.

    OH MY GOD !!! This is why I don't use programs to generate rollover scripts for me. I looked at your source, and this is what it's doing for ONE rollover:

    <a ONMOUSEOVER="toggleImages('home', new Array('cas_template_3_01', 'images/cas_template_3_01-home_o-04.jpg', 'home', 'images/home-over.jpg', 'services', 'images/services.jpg', 'contact', 'images/contact-over.jpg', 'claims', 'images/claims.jpg', 'faq', 'images/faq.jpg', 'cas_template_3_15', 'images/cas_template_3_15-contact_o.jpg', 'cas_template_3_16', 'images/cas_template_3_16.jpg'), 'services', new Array('cas_template_3_01', 'images/cas_template_3_01-services_.jpg', 'home', 'images/home.jpg', 'services', 'images/services-over.jpg', 'contact', 'images/contact-over.jpg', 'claims', 'images/claims.jpg', 'faq', 'images/faq.jpg', 'cas_template_3_15', 'images/cas_template_3_15-contact_o.jpg', 'cas_template_3_16', 'images/cas_template_3_16.jpg'), 'claims', new Array('cas_template_3_01', 'images/cas_template_3_01-contact_o.jpg', 'home', 'images/home.jpg', 'services', 'images/services.jpg', 'contact', 'images/contact-over.jpg', 'claims', 'images/claims-over.jpg', 'faq', 'images/faq.jpg', 'cas_template_3_15', 'images/cas_template_3_15-contact_o.jpg', 'cas_template_3_16', 'images/cas_template_3_16-claims_ov.jpg'), 'faq', new Array('cas_template_3_01', 'images/cas_template_3_01-contac-11.jpg', 'home', 'images/home.jpg', 'services', 'images/services.jpg', 'contact', 'images/contact-over.jpg', 'claims', 'images/claims.jpg', 'faq', 'images/faq-over.jpg', 'cas_template_3_15', 'images/cas_template_3_15-contact_o.jpg', 'cas_template_3_16', 'images/cas_template_3_16.jpg'), '', new Array('cas_template_3_01', 'images/cas_template_3_01-contac-11.jpg', 'contact', 'images/contact-over.jpg', 'cas_template_3_15', 'images/cas_template_3_15-contact_o.jpg'));

    Yeah, that's disgusting.... I looked at that not too long after he posted the question and I freaked out so bad I had to leave for a couple of hours... :-[

    Rollovers are relatively easy to hand-script with javascript and much easier to read and debug.

    Thanks alot for the information. So the suggestion is to learn Javascript. I guess programs don't really do a good job. What other suggestions you guys or gals have for me so I can start learning al this good stuff.

    These 4 links are taken from this thread, as recommendations on sites to visit to learn Javascript:

    The very last one is the one you want. It will preload the rollover images after the site is loaded (so there's no delay in load time) and then when you need them, they're cached on the user's browser.
