    preloading then showing pictures

    I just spent 3 hours analyzing tons of lightboxes, image galleries, jQuery plugins. Now I'm a bit frustrated.
    I don't want a snazzy animation effect.
    I don't want a pre-made layout.


    This is what I want:

    On page load, 12-15 bigger images are preloaded into browser cache.
    Div#container contains a default image.
    When user clicks a thumbnail link, the corresponding (bigger) preloaded image shows inside #container.


    A jQuery solution would be good. Any assistance is mmmmmuch appreciated.

    Hmm - you do not seem to have looked very far. No need for Lightbox, JQuery or whatever. Have you, for example, looked at:-
