       setTimeout(function() {

Hi leakim971,

thank you for a solution. I have tried using your code in my page.

my gift wrapper image gif, before it completes/loads shows the content below it. I can not figure out why. My wrapper image id is #gifIDmbl.

any help or thoughts please?

issue mainly happens in small screen devices. before the animation loads and played completely, the layer behind shows up.

Current animation duration is 5000 ms.
