It looks like you've got it all setup except for the part where you replace the image with a new image.  I would add that into the initImage function, like below:

(You might also want to preload the images, so they are loaded before they start fading in)
function initImage(newImageSrc) {
   imageId = 'thephoto';
   image = document.getElementById(imageId);
   setOpacity(image, 0);
   image.style.visibility = "visible";
   if(newImageSrc) image.src = newImageSrc;
   fadeIn(imageId,0);
}
 
...
 
<input type="button" onclick="initImage('one.jpg')" value="one">
<input type="button" onclick="initImage('two.jpg')" value="two">

The easiest thing to do is stick a "preload" div at the bottom of your document like in the first example below.  You can also use a function, like the second example.
<!-- Example 1 -->
<div style="display:none" id="preloads">
  <img src="image1.src" alt="" />
  <img src="image2.src" alt="" />
</div>
 
<!-- Example 2 -->
<script>
function preload() {
var d=document;
if(d.images){
  if(!d.imgs) d.imgs=new Array();
  var i,j=d.imgs.length,a=preload.arguments;
  for(i=0; i<a.length; i++)
    if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){
      d.imgs[j]=new Image;
      d.imgs[j++].src=a[i];
    }
  }
}
 
//in body.onload ...
preload("image1.jpg", "image2.jpg", ...);
</script>
