How to Create Lazy-Loading Images with jQuery

The effects of lazy load images can be seen on a number of websites. This technique forces your images to pause the loading process until the reader has viewed that specific area of the page. Web designers can build this onto a webpage through a number of resources, especially jQuery plugins.

In this article I’d like to examine lazy loading images and why so many people are interested in the technique. Then I’ll offer a brief tutorial which explains how you can include a popular jQuery plugin and customize the settings for your own lazy image loader. This doesn’t require much knowledge in the realm of JavaScript which is great for non-technical webmasters.
