Hide the div:

div.style.display = "none";

Expand the div:

div.style.display = "block";

The panel layouts can be whatever you want.  In this example, they are named "left", "middle", and "right", but you can easily update the styles to make them "top", "middle", and "bottom" if you want...

All that is missing is that you place your image inside the div with id=middle (or set the image as middle's background) - whatever you prefer.

<script>
function toggleMiddle(){
	(document.getElementById('middle').style.display=='inline') ? document.getElementById('middle').style.display='none' : document.getElementById('middle').style.display='inline';
}
</script>
<style>
#left {border:1px solid black; height:300px; width:200px; float:left;}
#middle {border:1px solid black; height:300px; width:200px; float:left; display:none;}
#right {border:1px solid black; height:300px; width:200px; float:left;}
</style>
<div id="left">Left</div>
<div id="middle"></div>
<div id="right">Right</div>
<input type="button" onclick="toggleMiddle()">Toggle Middle DIV</input>
