jQuery Cycle Plugin: How to preload first images with a loading background gif then fade in Cycle Slideshow?
I'm struggling with this, maybe some of you can help...
- Images are large and sometimes with slow connections (but even in fast ones) the behavior of the slideshow start is pretty ugly, showing the image all of a sudden or half-loaded.
- I want to make sure that at least the 2 or 3 first images are loaded before the slideshow starts and meanwhile I want to run a loading animated gif, then I want to fade in the first image.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
