How To Preload Images

Dec 5, 2010

the first 4 tabs are showing some images as background:clicking the tabs will trigger a fading-effect, but as long as the user hasn't watched the 4 images, the effect is "interupted" by the loadingprocess of the images. is it possible to preload those images so that they are in the browsercache or something?

Preload Many Images

Jul 23, 2005

I have tried several preload scripts found here; plus, some of my own.
The only thing that works is the unsophisticated loading of those
tiny images. The download consist of 100+ images amounting to 50+mb;
and, normally completes in less than 1 minute without preload (using
DSL).

The preload terminates after 6 or 7 images and seems to time-out in the middle of an image. A reload will download a few more, etc. I have used the <body onLoad=function()>
approach as well as the non-function approach of JS that executes immediately with the page's loading. Getting the same results with Netscape-7 and IE-6.

I need to add: The source of the array containing the image references is a '.js' file. That doesn't seem pertinent as some of the images always load.

Preload All Images

Jun 1, 2004

I would like to preload all images on a certain page, without 'knowing' which pictures are on the page. (I want to write a .js file, put in the header of all the pages)... So, I don't know what pictures are on the particular pages.

Can this be done? If so, how?

Than another question (if the above is possible)... Say, one of the 'found' pictures can't be loaded (it's not in the correct folder)... can this pictures be replaced with another picture? (for instance: pic_not_found.jpg).

Preload Images Not Working

Jul 23, 2005

I'm preloading images with the standard code:

default1 = new Image(); default1.src = "images/image1.gif";
changed1 = new Image(); changed1.src = "images/image1-on.gif";
default2 = new Image(); default2.src = "images/image2.gif";
changed2 = new Image(); changed2.src = "images/image2-on.gif";

And this is my rollover code:

var iName="";
function Ichange(p) {
var pSrc=eval(p+ ".src");
document[iName].src = pSrc;
}

But for some reason on the first mouseover it doesn't seem like the
image has been preloaded. There is a delay, like it's looking for the
rollover image, which should have already been preloaded. Anyone have
any ideas why?

Here is the inline code for a mouseover:

Preload Images In A Loop

Nov 25, 2006

I think to preload an image I should us something like:

img = new Image();
img.src = 'images/img.jpg'

Could someone tell me how to create a loop which would preload a list
of images? Something like:

ImagesFolder = '...'
ImagesNames = '...'

For i = 0 to ImagesNames.Count
img = new Image();
img.src = imagesFolder + imagesNames(i)
End

Is this a good approach? Could someone tell me the javascript code for this?

Preload Images Using A Loop

Feb 3, 2009

i am making a gallery and i was advised by philip m to preload my images before hand, so that the gallery runs smooth. i have done so but in a different way to what ive seen on some of the other posts on this forum and i was just wondering if this was practical javascript or am i over doing it.bascially, the images are external hrefs loaded into place holders.the external hrefs are stored as strings in an array.

so the loop runs for however many image hrefs are in the array.so the first iteration of the loop, an image is created and is given the href of whateever value the loop is of the array.then for each iteration of the loop, the var img, is overwritten with the next href in the array.so technically, iam not creating as many images as there are in the array, i am just creating 1 then overwriting it, but still loading the image data in to the browser cache.

Javascript Preload Images

Jun 24, 2003

I have a site that I have a bunch of rollovers for..

I have a preload image script as follows:


<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!-- Begin
image1 = new Image();
image1.src = "/images/image1-over.jpg";
image2 = new Image();
image2.src = "/images/image2-over.jpg";
// End -->
</script>


This works just fine for NETSCAPE... it preloads it, so you can cruise over the rollovers perfectly without wait the first time you load.


However, with IE, it doesn't work the way it should, and it still takes time to load each rollover when you hover the first time. And they don't seem to cache properly and you're constantly reloading them.

Javascript How-To: Preload Images

Mar 4, 2002

I had opportunity to meet with Creole a few days ago and we were discussing some options to pursue in the Build forum. I thought I'd start here in javascript and find out methods users use to preload images. I realize that this information can likely be found in a google search, but if we can get some good insight, maybe start putting an FAQ of javascript issues for Sitepoint Forums together. What do you think?

Preload All The Images When The Page Loads?

Dec 29, 2010

i am working on a facebook like photo viewer. I have used javascript to declare an array of about 200 images. I have the following approach to pre-load the images.I preload all the images when the page loads:

HTML: <body onload = "lodpic()">
JAVASCRIPT:
function lodpic()
{
for(i=0; i<=199; i++) {[code]....

The problem is the page tries to load all the images when opened. And when the user clicks "next" to view other photos, the other photo is still loading where as some are already loaded.I would like the code to be able to load the photo that the user is currently viewing as the user gets to that picture, before the page tries to finish loading all the photos.In other words, if the user wants to view a particular photo directly, that photo should get the priority of loading quickly.

Defining Preload Var For Composite Images

Nov 13, 2006

I have built a function that allows users to select a color tile and trim option for a cooking range. Here is a code snippet showing the function:

var color, trim, description;
function displayRange(selectColor, selectTrim, showDes)
{
var rangeName;
if (selectColor != '')
color = selectColor;
if (selectTrim != '')
trim = selectTrim;
rangeName = "images/cluny1400" + color;
if (trim == 'chrome')
rangeName += "_chrome";
rangeName += ".jpg";

var rangeDescription;
if (showDes != '')
description = showDes;
rangeDescription = description;
document.getElementById('rangePict').src = rangeName;
document.getElementById('rangeDes').innerHTML = rangeDescription;
}

Based on the users selections the range image in the selected color and trim is loaded into the interface. My problem is this:

The selected image is made up of three elements, based on the users selection, color and trim and the .jpg extension. This function works well.

However, I cannot work out how to use the image object to preload the images (of which there will be over 34). Normally you would assing a var to hold a new instance of the image object and then assign the src property to the image url. But how do I do that when the var rangeName is composed of three elements. I cannot use a simple var and then call that var in the function.

I have this code snippet, that illustrates my problem:

// create function to preload images
// eliminate older browsers by checking for image object support
function preload() {
if (document.images) {
cluny1400au = new Image(478, 314);
cluny1400au.src = "images/cluny1400au_fw.jpg";
cluny1400au_fw_chrome = new Image(478, 314);
cluny1400au_fw_chrome.src = "images/cluny1400au_fw_chrome.jpg";
}
}

The vars cluny1400au and cluny1400au_fw_chrome would be fine if I could use them in the function to call the images, but I don't think this will work as I believe that you have to use the same var name in the function as in the image object.

Can anyone tell me how the cluny1400au = new Image(478, 314); and cluny1400au_fw_chrome.src = "images/cluny1400au_fw_chrome.jpg"; should be constructed to work with the function.

Here is an html snippet from the page to aid clarity:

<body onLoad="preload()">
<div id="wrapper">
<p><img src="images/cluny1400_bw_chrome.jpg" name="rangePict" width="478" height="314" id="rangePict" /></p>
<p id="rangeDes" name="rangeDes">Description</p>

Thank you in advance for any help.

Preload Images In Image Swap

Aug 4, 2003

This code seems so simple but I can not get it to work. I am trying to preload images for use in an image swap. This is the code I am using:

<body onLoad="preloadimages('ro_bui.jpg', 'ro_mar.jpg', 'ro_sto.jpg', 'ro_mec.jpg', 'ro_pai.jpg', 'ro_fib.jpg')">

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">

for (i=0;i<arguments.length;i++){
roimages[i]=new Image();
roimages[i].src=preloadimages.arguments[i];
}

</script>

In the mouseover event I have

<a href="marina.htm" onmouseover="document.images['ro'].src=roimage[0].src" onmouseout="document.images['ro'].src='ro_base.jpg'">

Preload Images Using Variables In A Loop

Jul 28, 2005

I want to create a javascript function which preloads a few images.

The function preloadImages should receive a variable which indicates the web site current culture.

If culture = "pt-PT" then should use arrayptPT
If culture = "en-GB" then should use arrayenGB
and so on...

Then all images of the array should be loaded using a For loop.

All the images in the array are in path: images/ culture value /.

So the ideal would be to have only the image filenames in the arrays.

Then the loop would go throught the right culture array and load all the images there from folder images/ culture value /...

Preload Function

Jul 20, 2005

Iīm using dreamweaverīs built in preloader for a menu. it looks like this:

function MM_preloadImages() { //v3.0
var d=document; if(d.images){ if(!d.MM_p) d.MM_p=new Array();
var i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length;
i++)
if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Image; d.MM_p[j++].src=a[i];}}

Then, in the body tag you have the preload:

<body onload="MM_preloadimages('/images/image1.jpg','/images/image2.jpg')">

But I donīt want the function calls to be in the file itself, BUT linked to

Slow Preload For IE

Jul 20, 2005

Has anyone else had this issue? Basically, the preload of images for a
rollover effect for the navigation is really really slow when using IE
6.0 but when i view the site using Netscape, it's fast like it should
be(no lag!)

My problem is that since 96% of users use IE, i need to figure a way
to fix this. Below is the javascript currently being used. The
arguments are passed in before the script is called.

MM_preloadImages(
'<%=assets_path%>/left_nav/manage_view_wthr_on.gif',
'<%=assets_path%>/left_nav/manage_admin_guide_on.gif',
'<%=assets_path%>/left_nav/manage_terms_cond_on.gif',
'<%=assets_path%>/left_nav/manage_reports_on.gif',
'<%=assets_path%>/left_nav/manage_account_info_on.gif',
)


function gn_rollover_preload(){
//preloads middle images for the navigation
if (document.images){
var argLength = gn_rollover_preload.arguments.length;

for (arg=0; arg < argLength; arg++){
eval(arguments[arg] + "_off = new Image()");
eval(arguments[arg] + "_on = new Image()");
eval(arguments[arg] + "_left = new Image()");
eval(arguments[arg] + "_right = new Image()");

eval(arguments[arg] + "_off.src = '" + ASSET_PATH_HEADER +
"button_nav_"+ arguments[arg] + "_off.gif'");
eval(arguments[arg] + "_on.src = '" + ASSET_PATH_HEADER +
"button_nav_"+ arguments[arg] + "_on.gif'");
eval(arguments[arg] + "_left.src = '" + ASSET_PATH_HEADER +
"button_nav_"+ arguments[arg] + "_left.gif'");
eval(arguments[arg] + "_right.src = '" + ASSET_PATH_HEADER +
"button_nav_"+ arguments[arg] + "_right.gif'");
}

// Now Preload all "corner" images for faster swapping
corner1 = new Image();
corner2 = new Image();
corner2_both = new Image();
corner3 = new Image();
corner3_both = new Image();
corner4 = new Image();
corner4_both = new Image();
corner5 = new Image();

corner1.src = eval("'" + ASSET_PATH_HEADER +
"button_nav_corner_1.gif'");
corner2.src = eval("'" + ASSET_PATH_HEADER +
"button_nav_corner_2.gif'");
corner2_both.src = eval("'" + ASSET_PATH_HEADER +
"button_nav_corner2_both.gif'");
corner3.src = eval("'" + ASSET_PATH_HEADER +
"button_nav_corner_1.gif'");
corner3_both.src = eval("'" + ASSET_PATH_HEADER +
"button_nav_corner3_both.gif'");
corner4.src = eval("'" + ASSET_PATH_HEADER +
"button_nav_corner_1.gif'");
corner4_both.src = eval("'" + ASSET_PATH_HEADER +
"button_nav_corner4_both.gif'");
corner5.src = eval("'" + ASSET_PATH_HEADER +
"button_nav_corner_2.gif'");

}
}
