Lesson 8. Creating Rollovers > About naming rollovers

About naming rollovers

Rollovers require two or three similar images, which appear in the same spot on the page. The first image (named Normal in the Rollovers tab of the Rollovers & Actions palette.) is the normal appearance of the rollover—the way it appears when the mouse pointer is somewhere else on the page in a browser. The second image (named Over in the Rollovers tab of the Rollovers & Actions palette) is a different version of the image (for example, a highlighted appearance), which appears when the user's mouse pointer is on top of the rollover. The third image (named Down in the Rollovers tab of the Rollovers & Actions palette) appears when the user clicks on the rollover.

In GoLive you can add rollovers by adding an image placeholder from the Basic set of the Objects palette and set rollover properties in the in the Rollovers tab of the Rollovers & Actions palette. You can use the Detect Rollover Images feature to automatically assign images to rollovers, which saves time and ensures consistency. (This feature can be found on the Rollovers & Actions palette menu and is on by default.)
