I've made a layout for a client, but I'm having trouble getting at the menu buttons I've made. Instead of making each button its own layer, I rushed and have all of the menu text on one layer, with the button backgrounds on two layers (one for the 'Home' button's active state, one for the rest). I've tried merging my layers, but all I get is the black and grey button background overlapping my menu text, which is definitely not what I want. I need to get at these buttons so I can create the mouseover state for all of them, and the active state for all but the 'Home' button. Below is a link to my layout. Any ideas on how I can get at those menu buttons?

Yah, somehow I believe this is in the wrong forum but here you go.

Code: [ Select ]
<a href="LINK HERE" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore()" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('Image2','','ROLLOVER STATE IMAGE ADDRESS HERE',1)"><img src="UP STATE IMAGE ADDRESS HERE" name="Image2" border="0" id="Image2" /></a>


This code is for preloading your rollover images.
Code: [ Select ]
<body onload="MM_preloadImages('ROLLOVER STATE IMAGE ADDRESS HERE')">
Make sure you add a comma between the picture urls for your rollover images. Good luck! 8)

Please re-read my original post. I already know how to make rollovers. In fact, I wouldn't do it with JavaScript, but with CSS, but I digress.

My problem is that I'm having difficulty cutting/copying those buttons out of my layout in order to create the rollover graphics. Like I said before, by buttons are on two layers -- one for all of the buttons' background (minus the 'Home' button in the layout I provided), and one for all of the text. Since I'm still a Photoshop newbie, I'm wondering if there's an easy way to cut/copy both of those layers out of the layout and into a new .psd so I have a base to make the rollover graphics from. I tried merging layers in order to retain all of the layer effects of both, but it doesn't work quite the way I want it to. Any ideas?

Well if you have photoshop you should look into creating rollovers in Imageready. It automatically generates the html and creates a folder for the images. This way you shouldn't have probably like the one you have above. For more info on creating rollovers go to Help-->Photoshop Help and type in "creating rollover"
