- User clicks on the image that opens larger image in lightbox.
- Translucent dark background appears and image starts loading.
I created a test page for better understanding: http://dimsemenov.com/plugins/magnific-popup/private-test.html
Is preloader required there or not? Will the user be confused by viewing just dark overlay for a few hundred milliseconds until first bytes are fetched and the image starts displaying? Or will it be better to display "Loading..." text in the middle of window? What do you think?
