Hi everyone. I'm using DW8 to design my site. I'm currently using layers with rollovers to view photos but I am wondering how I would get something like this..... http://www.fotografz.com/way-we-looked.htm.

How are "events" used, how do they work? If anyone can steer me in the right direction, maybe a tutorial, that would be great. Thank you! Z

that is a very simple page coded in a very old style.

it uses tables (which are stil ok when used right) and it uses old clunky javascripting for those rollover effects. Rollovers can be done with css and background positioning. (you see how it takes a extra spilt second after you mouse over the image for it to turn to the rollover image). Compare that with somthing like this which i worked on recently: http://mcode.com.au/

but the site is pleasing to the eye, so it a well desinged site in my opinion - the drop shadows do give a more professional and not so static look.

What exactly are you looking at making - is it the slide show function? or do you want to replicate those image rollovers. If so thats easy and i can provide you a template (using css) if you want.

Just holla back.
