<img class="lateImage" data-src="1.jpg" alt="image 1">
<img class="lateImage" data-src="2.jpg" alt="image 2">
<img class="lateImage" data-src="3.jpg" alt="image 3">

3. Initialize the library with jQuery.

<script src="//"></script>

4. Initialize the library with pure JavaScript.

new LateImage(element,option);
