    Do you have a link to an example? I think you may be talking about a tooltip script?? Check this link.

    Otherwise you can put cartoon like "thought ballons" into pics with photoshop or something similar.

    The "thought balloons" would not be "pop-up" but permanently part of the pic. If you want it to "pop-up" the tooltip script is the way to go. A link to an example would clarify things alot.

    If you want that to "pop-up" you would use that image in the tooltip script and when people mouseover the pic the balloon would "pop-up".

    You would have to create or copy the image in photshop.

    If you go to this link http://www.bosrup.com/web/overlib/features.html it shows you how to use the image as the background for the tooltip and then add the text for it.

    Could you not use a hidden layer and then show it when you mouseover?

    You can not say you know how to do something, until you can teach it to someone else.
