I made a flow chart using Illustrator for a web page on our intranet. I need to have the boxes change color when they are moused over.  I made the original chart and one with the new colors. I converting the chart to JPEG and doing the slices in Paint Shop Pro and then use the button that says rollover creation to point to the new image.  It didn't really work right which didn't really work right; I didn't try messing with it because the graphics looked terrible.  I know Illustrator can do slices and I can make them just fine but is there a way to point to the rollover image here?  Since these .ai graphics aren't viewable on the web I wasn't sure.  I'm using Dreamweaver to create the website. Do I need to the rollover here?  Thanks.

Jennifersrivera,

If you can create your slices as images and get them looking the way you want, then use dreamweaver to place them and manage the rollovers, I think you'll be in better shape.

To insert the rollover image into your page, select where on your page you want the images to go, then go to  Insert -> Image Objects -> Rollover Image. You'll get a pane that lets you select the two images to be used, and the path to the page you are linking to. Click OK, voila, instant rollover.

Cheers,
LHerrou

Sorry it took me so long to give you credit.  I just got preoccupied with doing the work and forgot to come back and give you the credit.  Thanks a lot!
