    Help with Image Map Image Flip

    Well, I'm fairly new to these forums as well as using javascript. I'm trying to create a front page image for my website, http://rctlounge.com. I was interested in making parts of the mapped image enlarge when one's mouse hovers over them, and I found the tutorial on this site for doing so. However, I did crop my image into multiple sections, I haven't gotten it to work. Here's the code I'm using, be kind, I'm new to it.
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="javascript">
    Image1 = new Image(311,239)
    Image1.src = "topleft1.jpg"
    Image2 = new Image(311,239)
    Image2.src = "topleft2.jpg"
    Image3 = new Image(311,238)
    Image3.src = "topmiddle1.jpg" 
    Image4 = new Image(311,238)
    Image4.src = "topmiddle2.jpg"
    Image5 = new Image(371,238)
    Image5.src = "topright1.jpg"
    Image6 = new Image(371,238)
    Image6.src = "topright2.jpg"
    Image7 = new Image(470,320)
    Image7.src = "bottomleft1.jpg"
    Image8 = new Image(470,320)
    Image8.src = "bottomleft2.jpg"
    Image9 = new Image(522,319)
    Image9.src = "bottomright1.jpg"
    Image10 = new Image(522,319)
    Image9.src = "bottomright2.jpg"
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="javascript">
    function zoom7() {
    document.emp.src = Image10.src;returntrue;
    function zoom6() {
    document.emp.src = Image9.src;returntrue;
    function zoom5() {
    document.emp.src = Image8.src;returntrue;
    function zoom4() {
    document.emp.src = Image7.src;returntrue;
    function zoom3() {
    document.emp.src = Image6.src; returntrue;
    function zoom2() {
    document.emp.src = Image5.src; returntrue;
    function zoom1() {
    document.emp.src = Image4.src; returntrue;
    function zoomin() {
    document.emp.src = Image3.src; return true;
    function zoomout() {
    document.emp.src = Image2.src; return true;
    function original() {
    document.emp.src = Image1.src; return true; 
    <body bgcolor="e1e1e2">
    <center><img src="topleft1.jpg" USEMAP="#Image1" BORDER=0>
    <map name="Image1">
      <area shape="rect" coords="122,127,272,202" href="http://www.atari.com/rollercoastertycoon/"  
    alt="RCT3" onMouseOver="zoomout()" onMouseOut="original()">
    </map><img src="topmiddle1.jpg" USEMAP="Image3" BORDER=0>
    <map name="Image3">
      <area shape="rect" coords="69,140,262,190" href="http://rctlounge.com/forums/index.php" alt="Visit 
    the RCTLounge Community!" onMouseOver="zoom1()' onMouseOut="zoomin()">
    </map><img src="topright1.jpg" USEMAP="#Image6" BORDER=0>
    <map name="Image6">
      <area shape="rect" coords="4,163,159,208" href="http://www.nolimitscoaster.com" alt="NoLimits" 
    onMouseOver="zoom3()" onMouseOut="zoom2()">
    </map><br><img src="bottomleft1.jpg" USEMAP="Image8" BORDER=0>
    <map name="Image8">
      <area shape="rect" coords="255,108,395,177" 
    href="http://atari.com/us/games/rollercoaster_tycoon_2_triple_thrill_pack/pc"  alt="RCT2" 
    onMouseOver="zoom5()" onMouseOut="zoom4()" >
    </map><img src="bottomright1.jpg" USEMAP="Image10" BORDER=0>
    <map name="Image10">
      <area name="Image10" shape="rect" coords="11,211,213,277" 
    href="http://www.lucasarts.com/games/thrillville_franchise/"  alt="Thrillville" onMouseOver="zoom7()" 
    Please tell me what's wrong, and why it's wrong so I have a reference for future.

    i would suggest having the background as one image and all the buttons seperate. you can use CSS to change the height and width of the image using the :hover selector, and use position:absolute to position them where you want on the page

    anyway, the immediate problem i can see with your script is you have 'document.emp.src' in all your zooming functions where theres no such thing as 'emp'.

    I use an imaging sdk found on the internet which can flip images found on the internet . Install it and it becomes a selectable processing option.Then you can rotate images in any program at all, including Adobe Acrobat . Just open the images, select flip ,and follow the setps given in the sdk, the task will be finished in several seconds. if you haven't found a good choice , you can have a try. best wishes.
