Last Modified: 2016-08-10
After the image loads, I want to remove it.  This does NOT work:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<style type="text/css">
img {
width: 100px;
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.1.0.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function() {

    var imgI=0;
    $('.showImage img').each(function() {
        var tmpImg = new Image() ;
        tmpImg.onload = function(){


         if( imgI++ === ($('.showImage img').length-1) ) {
          alert('all images loaded!');
        tmpImg.src = $(this).attr('src');
    }) ;
}) ;



 <div class="showImage"><img src="http://www.space.com/images/i/000/056/377/original/fullmoonmultiple.JPG?interpolation=lanczos-none&fit=inside%7C660:*?z2z2322z" alt=""/></div>
 <div class="showImage"><img src="https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e1/FullMoon2010.jpg?z3z32z22" alt=""/></div>
