Thanks so much for your response.
This page is one example of the problem I'm having. The image loads and then does the fade after. I'd like to get it so it just fades in from the start.
Thanks again and I look forward to reading your reply!
I've never used this effect. Maybe if you preload the image(s)...
Go to Behaviors panel.
Click the plus sign (+).
From the drop menu, select Preload Images.
Thanks Nancy but that doesn't seem to fix the problem. Seems strange to me to have a fade effect when the image loads first. I know there's an answer for this.
