What is a rollover image and how do I create one in Website Builder?

This article will show you how to implement a rollover image for your website.

A rollover image is a secondary image loaded into your page to display when a visitor to your site ‘rolls over’ a certain image within your site. It is used to make your site more interactive and may be used to display different views of a same image, or alternative products.

To install a rollover image, you will need two images loaded into your image gallery. One image will be the default image shown when your website loads (i.e. the primary image) and the secondary image will appear when a visitor ‘rolls over’ the primary image. Both these images will need to be the exact same size, otherwise it may result in stretching or distortion.
