If you defined slices in your file but don't see them listed in the Rollovers palette, click the small triangle in the upper-right corner of the palette and choose Palette Options from the palette menu. Then, select Include Slices And Image Maps, and click OK.
After adding a new rollover state, notice the actual state you added. In most cases, if this is the first state you're adding to a slice or image, it is considered the Over state. In other words, you're now editing how the area will look when the cursor is placed over it.
To change the state to another, right-click (Windows) or CTRL-click (Mac) the slice or image name in the Rollovers palette and select the appropriate state from the pop-up menu. (You don't need to use all of these states in your file. In fact, the most common are simply Normal, Over, and Selected.)
• Over How the area looks when the cursor is placed over it
• Down How the area looks when the user clicks the mouse button while over the area
• Selected How the area looks when the user clicks the mouse button while over the area (the button is pressed and released); this state remains even if the user moves and clicks another button.
• Out How the area looks when the user moves the cursor away from the area
• Up How the area looks when the user releases the mouse button after pressing it while over the area
• Click How the area looks when the user clicks the mouse button on the area (the button is pressed and released) and keeps the cursor over the area
• None No state is attached, and therefore no file will be output when the page is saved out of ImageReady
