I'm trying to copy an effect that I have seen on comercial DVD's where, rather than highlighting, a relivant picture will apear next to the button. These images are not neccisarily overlaping with each other or anything like that.
At first I though you could incorperate the image into the highlight layer, but after reading the other blogs, I understand why you can't do that. but I still don't understang how you 'do' do it.

You need duplicate menus - one for each button. Add the appropriate picture to each button on its respective menu. Edit each Menu Color Set to make the Normal highlight state transparent. Set each "non-picture" button on each menu to auto-activate and link to the appropriate dupe menu.
