Big Image Making a Page Jump

Hi,

I am using a big image on one page.  When the page loads the image makes a jump.   The page starts loading in one position then jumps to the left and finishes loading there.  I tried taking the pixel size out of the line.  That made the jump smaller, but still the page jumps.  I tried putting the image in a div, and taking it out of a div.  How could I code this big image into the page in such a way that it will not make the page jump over to the left while loading?

Thanks!!

Hello,

Thanks for your reply!  Before we did use the height & width, same thing.  Including the height & width makes the page will jump when loading.  Removing that made the page jump a little less.  Im thinking of using a div and making the image the background of the div?  Would that work?  How would I do that?

Thanks!!

Can you tell me the dimensions of your image and the resolution of your screen

Hello mplungjan,

I made it a div, cleared both sides - firefox required that to keep its positioning correct.  Then set the big image as the background of the div and... it worked!

Thanks for your reply & the link.  It helped me to understand!

Thanks!!
