I’m using the Reveal Lightbox stack to create a weather page where the lightbox is displayed when a user wants to view a map. You can see it at
The issue I’m having is that I thought if the image was not yet shown on the page then it would not preload. I just did an inspect element and loaded my page to see many MB of images being loaded even though they are not displayed to the user. This, of course, is unacceptable due to load time issues.
So does anyone know if it is possible to create a page like this without having every image preload? I only want it to load when the user wants to view it.
