Why is my jquery slideshow moving in a strange direction?

Does anyone know why the first transition in my JQuery slideshow moves to the bottom-left rather than straight down? I'm using the jquery.cycle.all.js plugin to create the effect, but I don't understand why it starts off moving in a weird direction.

I tested your code in FF2 and chrome6. It is not moving in any direction. Looks fine to me

I can verify that the first image drops down to the left while subsequent images turndown as expected. My conclusion is that your jquery.js file is not working for you. Try replacing your js include for the jquery library with this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

It fixed it in my test.

On a side note, there are a ton of validation errors in the html but I don't think they are having an affect on the problem cited.

Hmm I added the script tag that you showed above and it doesn't seem to be solving the problem, see link below. Also, what are the validation errors? I'm new to this so I don't know too much about validation.

Ah, I just realized the difference between your page and my test page. I don't have your images so I used the ones from the Cycle site. They have width and height specified, you don't. When I take out the width and height from my test, I can recreate the problem you are experiencing. Try that.

For validation, go here and see the results from w3.org:w3.orgValidation
