loadImages.js is a simple, lightweight jQuery plugin which displays a CSS3 based animated loader to indicate the image is loading and you have to still wait. Also supports background images. The plugin automatically generates a loading element appending to your image's container (its parent) while the image is downloading.

How to use it:

1. Put jQuery library and the jQuery loadImages.js script at the bottom of the html page.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-3.1.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="build/js/loadImages.js"></script>

2. Call the function on the img tag and done.

$('img').loadImages();

3. Style the loading element in the CSS as follows:

.loading-img, .loading-img .box {
  position: absolute;
  left: 0;
  top: 0
}

.loading-img {
  background: #ddd;
  display: inline-block;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  z-index: 2
}

.loading-img .box {
  width: 78x;
  height: 78px;
  right: 0;
  bottom: 0;
  margin: auto
}

.loading-img .loading:after, .loading-img .loading:before {
  content: '';
  position: absolute;
  top: 50%;
  left: 50%;
  border-radius: 50%
}

.loading-img .loading:before {
  width: 35px;
  height: 35px;
  margin-top: -18px;
  margin-left: -18px;
  border-width: 2px 1px;
  border-style: solid;
  border-color: #000 rgba(0,0,0,.3);
  -webkit-animation: spin 3.45s infinite;
  -moz-animation: spin 3.45s infinite;
  -o-animation: spin 3.45s infinite;
  animation: spin 3.45s infinite
}

.loading-img .loading:after {
  width: 6px;
  height: 6px;
  margin-top: -3px;
  margin-left: -3px;
  background-color: #000;
  -webkit-animation: pulse 6.9s infinite, borderPulse 6.9s infinite;
  -moz-animation: pulse 6.9s infinite, borderPulse 6.9s infinite;
  -o-animation: pulse 6.9s infinite, borderPulse 6.9s infinite;
  animation: pulse 6.9s infinite, borderPulse 6.9s infinite
}
