Stop Nivo Slider image flash before transition

I’m using JJ NextGen jQuery Slider, one of my go-to slideshow plugins for WordPress.

  1. Thanks for the sharing , unfortunately it doesn’t work for me..
    May I know what exactly the loading.gif is? Does it have to be a specific gif image , or just anything else?

    I’m not noticing that Flash issue with this one, maybe it’s a non-issue for Chrome now?

  3. So this didn’t work for me either.. then I realized my image tags had the wrong height. I changed the height in the image tags to match the slider container and BOOM! Everything was fixed.

    Hope this helps someone.
