Hi Jeff,

I would recommend a simple pure CSS solution in your case :

1) Since your images are all the same size, set this size with CSS. In this way the page content will stop jumping during page load

#dlPics table table div
{
     width: 175px;
     height: 240px;
}


2) Set a "loading" background image to the divs, which wrap the images

#dlPics table table div
{
     background: url(...) center center no-repeat;
}


You can set a CSS class to table#dllPics and use it instead of the client ID.


I recommend the above solution because it is a lot lighter and easy to implement than any other possible ways to achieve what you want, which would require more coding and a lot of javascript executing on the page.

By the way, you surely do not need a separate table for each image - one table to wrap all images is enough. If you decide to optimize your HTML output, the above selectors will have to be modified accordingly.
