In addition to simple drop-down secondary menu styling, Zen now allows more complex drop-down menu 'panels.' (These are a great place to add images as well.)
To create your own similar "mega navigation" menu panel, simply:
Go the .zen.menu page where your menu is set (In Zen Intranet, this is found in the Intranet Utility space.)
Expand title Finding Zen Intranet's menu...(click to expand)
The simplest way to find and edit the menu for any space is to use the gear Select "Zen Space Settings"...menu.

...and in the Zen Space Settings UI, click the view and edit Menu link:

- Use the Section Menu to insert a section after the main menu.
- Add a list of links.
- Now, in this new section, use the Section Designer to set the 'title' field to match the text displayed in the menu tab where you'd like the drop menu panel to appear. (Zen will match up the title with the menu text.)
See below for more detailed menu panel design options.
To align and position content within your menu panels, you can:
Use the Editor's Layout Option
This option works great in Zen sections!
Select your desired number of columns, and insert your navigation links.
Use the Zen Wrap Macro
For more precise control, use the Wrap Macro, which allows you to float content, and add other styling, such as padding and margin.
You can add images to menu panels just as you would normally add images to any section:
Use the Insert option in the Editor to insert your image. You can then align and position it in a variety of ways:
As a Background Image
Use the Section Designer to select a background image to be used for your menu panel.
