I was wondering if you could help me. I'm trying to avoid delayed loading images on a hover as mentioned in this topic:
But I'm having trouble finding the background image URL's to use in @danro's method.
You can see the trouble I'm talking about whenever you initally visit our site, the image loading on hover is slow so causes the site to look broken, check it out: http://wearevillain.com/work
Perhaps there is a better way to get around this problem? I have tried to reduce the images in size as much as possible to reduce this loading time but even when super quick there is a moment of 'empty-ness'.
Any tips or tricks gratefully received!
