Image Hover Over change with One jpeg image

I have been tasked with writing multiple CSS classes for one image.  It is basically a social bar that when you hover over the link, the link changes color.  There is one image that contains 4 images meant for hover over and one image meant for the default image before hover over.  When the user hovers over the image or link, the css coordinates change to be another image within the one jpeg image to show the hovered image.  How am I supposed to do this so that it works?  The image looks like the following: SEE ATTACHED IMAGE.socialbar.jpg

That is a 'sprite' image.  The CSS will declare a 'div' with the right dimensions to show only one of the images and the background position will be adjusted so the correct one shows thru.  When you 'hover' over it, the CSS 'hover' code will change the background position to show the image of the other color.  More info here: http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_image_sprites.asp

You can use background-position property for changing position on spirite image.

divimage{
       display: block;
       background: url(sprite.png) no-repeat;
       height: 30px;
       width: 250px;
}

divimage:hover {
       background-position: 0 -30px;
}

Open in new window


Adjust background-position for each hover .
