Goog day!

Help me please.
I have many pictures on my site.
It takes a long time until all the images are downloaded.
I want to show low-quality copies of this pictures while they are downloading.
What are the ways to do it?

Thank you!

P.S. SME(sorry my english) biggrin.gif

Or does the OP mean lower quality, but with large dimensions?

One silly idea might be to show a poor quality image as a CSS background of the high quality one.

Images can also be made to render progressively in graphics programs: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interlace_(bitmaps)

Note that any of this increases total download time.
