Hour 24. Photoshop for the Web > Creating a Rollover Effect

Creating a Rollover Effect

Rollover effects are one of the most powerful features of ImageReady, allowing you to create effects that are triggered when the mouse is moved in relation to part of the image within a slice. For example, if the mouse is moved over the image, or if the mouse button is clicked on the image, these can activate an effect. A button is actually a kind of rollover effect, in that when you click the affected piece of the screen, something happens. You're taken to another page or to some different Web site.

The action that takes place when you move over a rollover is called a rollover state. The first state, by default, is always the Normal state, with no mouse action performed. When you create a new rollover state, you can select the mouse action that activates the state from a pop-up menu that appears when you choose New State from the Rollover window's menu or click the new State button at the bottom of the Rollover palette. (It looks just like the New Layer icon.) The State pop-up menu is shown in Figure 24.11.
