If you want to change the image on rollover or mouseover event. This is very old technique. You can achieve this using CSS or javascript. I given the simple and powerful code javascript mouse event. I tested this code. It works on all the browsers.

With CSS you can use the following code

.yourimage { background-image: url('firstImage.jpeg'); }
.yourimage:hover { background-image: url('secondImage.jpeg'); }

<div class=”yourimage” style=”height:100px;width:100px;min-height:100px;min-width:100px;”></div>

I am using the yourimage class for div element.

With javascript you can use following code

<img src="firstimage.jpeg" onmouseover="this.src='secondimage.jpeg'" onmouseout="this.src='firstimage.jpeg'"/>

If you are using the Jquery then use following code:

<div class="imagediv"/>

 $(document).ready(function () {
            $('div.imagediv').mouseover(function () {
                $(this).css(background-image", "url('secondimage.jpg')");
