The submenu container div element should have a higher z-index value than the image container for eg: the div element whose ID is "aid5" should have a z-index CSS property value > 1. That is the z-index value of the image container that blocks the visibility of the submenus is 1 so give a z-index value > 1 to the submenu container elements.

z-index is a value which decided in which order overlapping elements appear on a page. The element with the highest value will appear on top. To specify the z-index of an element use the z-index property with CSS, but note that z-indexing only works if the element has a specified position, e.g.:

element {
position: relative;
z-index: 1000;
