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>

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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