Instead of using a ZAP form for creating tool buttons I would use
standard link markup with images as the link text, like this:

[[{*$FullName}?action=source| Attach:Site/source.gif"source"]]
[[{*$FullName}?action=edit| Attach:Site/edit.gif"edit"]]

and upload the appropriate tool button images.

If you really need form input buttons as images you can use
(:input image name "source" alt:)

A button form would look like the following, there is no need for a form
processing script, (:input form "{$PageUrl}":) handles it just fine:

(:input form "{$PageUrl}" class=tb:)
(:input hidden action source:)
(:input image button1 "urlpathto/source.gif" source :)
(:input end:)
(:input form "{$PageUrl}" class=tb:)
(:input hidden action edit:)
(:input image button2 "urlpathto/edit.gif" edit :)
(:input end:)

the class=tb is there to make the forms behave as inline elements. It
is defined in pub/css/local.css as
    .tb , .tb p { display:inline;}

The url of the images needs to be given, Attach:image.gif does not
work inside the (:input image :) markup

The 'alt' text is important for browsers not displaying images.
In the above standard link example it is provided in double quotes
after the image, i.e. Attach:Site/edit.gif"edit"
