New to Storyline, how do I make my stuff do stuff?

Hello everyone,

I am a noob to Storyline, just downloaded the trial version. I am trying to make a short multiple choice sequence where the user can click 1 of 3 radio button choices (see attached pic). I would like for 2 of the 3 choices to dim out, regardless of which radio button is clicked. So the remaining correct picture/choice stays the same and the other 2 dim. 

I've gotten other animation the way I want it, and I know both triggers and hotspots are a thing, but I don't see how to use either of these to get my project to do exactly what I want.

Thank you for any help or advice.

I made a quick mockup for you with state changes on the other two pictures.

If you look on the timeline there is a states tab.  I added dim states to the objects and then used the triggers from the radio buttons to change the states on images 2 and 3 when any radio button is selected. 

this may be a start for you anyway.
