Ok, I perfer to handcode, but when I need a editor I use frontpage. But I have seen some sites like
http://www.astra-heights.com/
and I'm under the impression that dreamweaver or fireworks spits out the page rdy to go, if so i need to jump on the band wagon now ,to safe me tons of time.

is there some way you load the image and click n drag , layout you parametters and click generate and it automatic makes it..?

i came to believe this from,..
<!-- Fireworks 4.0  Dreamweaver 4.0 target.  Created Fri Jan 31 12:06:06 GMT-0600 (Central Standard Time) 2003-->

if so any guideness/info/tips or a walk - through?

What are you trying to do?  If you have Front Page already why not use that?  I 'm not a fan of it, but if you already have it.  It should provide the same functionality.

Okay, well I think dreamweaver only uses three functions to swap images.  Here they are...

function MM_swapImgRestore() { //v3.0
  var i,x,a=document.MM_sr; for(i=0;a&&i<a.length&&(x=a[i])&&x.oSrc;i++) x.src=x.oSrc;
}

function MM_swapImage() { //v3.0
  var i,j=0,x,a=MM_swapImage.arguments; document.MM_sr=new Array; for(i=0;i<(a.length-2);i+=3)
   if ((x=MM_findObj(a[i]))!=null){document.MM_sr[j++]=x; if(!x.oSrc) x.oSrc=x.src; x.src=a[i+2];}
}

function MM_findObj(n, d) { //v4.0
  var p,i,x;  if(!d) d=document; if((p=n.indexOf("?"))>0&&parent.frames.length) {
    d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);}
  if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i<d.forms.length;i++) x=d.forms[i][n];
  for(i=0;!x&&d.layers&&i<d.layers.length;i++) x=MM_findObj(n,d.layers[i].document);
  if(!x && document.getElementById) x=document.getElementById(n); return x;
}

Then the events are like so.

example of a linked image that changes onmouseover/mouseout:

<a href="http://www.yourlink.com" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore()" onMouseOver="MM_swapImage('imagetitle','','buttons/home/imgname_over.jpg',1)"><img name="imagetitle" border="0" src="buttons/home/imgname.jpg" width="130" height="17"></a>

There's also a preloadimages function that would be handy for you....

function MM_preloadImages() { //v3.0
  var d=document; if(d.images){ if(!d.MM_p) d.MM_p=new Array();
    var i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length; i++)
    if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Image; d.MM_p[j++].src=a[i];}}
}

To preload images add the above code between the <head> tags, then add the following code to you body tag, just list your images like the example below.

<body onLoad="MM_preloadImages('buttons/homepopups/about2over.gif','buttons/homepopups/Polpayhome_over.gif')">

Here's a couple of references...
