Big Image Making a Page Jump

Posted on 2006-10-21
Last Modified: 2010-04-06

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?

Code please...

My guess is you need to give it height and width

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?

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!
