Jquey slideshow

I am assisting a friend with a personal webpage.  It uses a JQuety Slideshow to load and scroll pictures.

Everything works 100% great.  However, the website has tons and tons of pictures so it takes forever for the slideshow to load and start.

To load the pictures into the slide show there is a piece of php that looks at a folder and pulls every image from the folder randomly.

Is there anyway to control the amount of images that load at first and then load more as time passes so the slideshow will start quicker?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can mix your JQuery with some AJax. First, with PHP load for example 1 picture. Then, with AJax load the rest of the pictures.
