Yummy yum yum yum :)

It's actually spelled celebrities. :)

function choose(obj){
 document.images["selebpic"].src = "../images/celeberties/"+this.options[this.options.selectedIndex].value;
}

<select name="celebselect" size="1" onchange="choose(this);">

To start, shouldn't that
<img id="selebpic" src="victoria.jpg" width="332" height="600">
be
SRC="../images/victorya.jpg"
?

This is, are the images stored in ../images? What's the proper name of the file?

Do you get an error message? Which?

In PBall's choose(obj) function, change all occurances of 'this' to 'obj'.
