I've set up a jquery gallery on this page:
http://www.redsremodeling.com/gallery/gallery.htm

When it opens though there is not initial image displayed. How would I get it to display the first image in the list when the page first opens?

Thanks

In the <body> onload callback,  you could start it going, something like this:

<body onload="$.galleria.next()">
