    No. But there is a way to swap one image for another or to reveal a
    previously hidden image.

    1. Don't use swap image - use Show/Hide layer instead. Have the alternate
    image in a hidden layer that is shown when the trigger is 'tickled'. Using
    this method you can have images that are any dimension.

    2. Use a SetTextofLayer behavior to change the image reference in a layer
    positioned so that it will show the desired larger image in the proper
    place.

    3. Use the PVII ShowPic extension - http://www.projectseven.com/

    Take your pick....

    That simply swaps one version of the image for another, and requires two
    images. Dreamweaver CS3 does, however, make it very easy to enlarge an
    image smoothly on rollover, and with just one image.

    Use the Grow/Shrink Spry effect. Apply two separate effects: one to make
    the image larger (set the event to onmouseover), and the other to reset
    it to the original size (set the event to onmouseout).

    I am new to this forum so please forgive me if I step outside any boundaries.

    You could try looking at CSS to do this. There are many demos available here:
    http://www.cssplay.co.uk/menu/gallery3l

    The link is to just one style. There are many. I am not familiar with the spry
    method, this is just my two cents with something I have used.
