Inserting a placeholder while images are loading

I am using a jQuery slide show called CrossSlide, which is introduced at http://tobia.github.com/CrossSlide/   My web page is at www.mauitradewinds.com/Experts  I need some guidance regarding how to implement the author's method of inserting a placeholder (the first image in the slide show) so that there is not a blank screen while images are loading. Please ignore the broken links on my web page -- I haven't uploaded files which are unrelated to the question at hand.

Why dont you put it llike this:

<div id="crossslide" style="width:1000px;height:602px;">
<img src="Rotator/1.jpg" />
</div>

Open in new window

Thank you for your comment.  Would the following also work?

<div align="center"><div id="crossslide" style="width:1000px;height:602px;background-image: url(Rotator/1.jpg);"></div>

It should, but there is a possibility that you'll see that background image during transitions.
