Hello experts!

Can someone tell me how I can swap an image with another for a set amount of time when a button is clicked using JQuery. I've managed to show an image for a set amount of time but swapping has deluded me? Thanks
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
	$('#click_to_load').click(function(){
		$('#loader').show(0).delay(500).hide(0);
		return false;
	});
});
</script>

It would be easier if corresponding HTML was also posted. What is #loader? A way would be to have two of those and show one and hide another after the set delay.

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
      $('#click_to_load').click(function(){
            $('#loader1').hide(0).delay(500).show(0);
            $('#loader2').show(0).delay(500).hide(0);
            return false;
      });
});
</script>

Hello,

#loader is the id of the div containing the image. so basically clicking the button with id of click_to_load shows the div with id ="loader".
<div id="loader">
    <img src="images/loading.gif" alt="Loading...">
</div><!-- end div -->

<div id="loader">
    <img id="img1" src="http://www.google.com/images/firefox/firefox1.png" alt="Loading...">
    <img id="img2" src="http://www.google.com/images/firefox/sync-addon.png" alt="Loading..." style="display:none">
</div><!-- end div -->


<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
      $('#click_to_load').click(function(){
            $('#loader')..show(0);
            setTimeout("$('#loader img').toggle();", 3000);
