This class can be used to generate page with preloaded images.

First, it can list images from a directory and store the list in a MySQL database.

The class can generate HTML with Javascript to preload all listed images in the user browser, so the next browsed pages that need the images can load much faster.

Some sites have pages that need to present slide shows or otherwise present many images that need to be displayed without delay.

Preloading is a technique for accelerating the display of images in a Web browser. It consists in creating invisible image objects in Javascript that make the browser load the images in memory before they are presented.

This class provides a generic solution for preloading images in a Web page generated by PHP.
