Hello everyone! I had a chat with Jordan and Marc last night about preloading images in Framer. This was the product of that discussion:
http://share.framerjs.com/jkhk8b4hn09t/

The images are populated randomly and are from an external source. Utils.loadImage is used to preload each image before the thumbnails are shown. The problem that I encountered is that when you invoke the lightbox to view a bigger version of the image, sometimes Framer re-requests the image even though it has already been loaded previously.

Am I missing something?

Cheers!

In this GIF, the hippo image keep getting re-requested ( not sure if that's a word :D ) http://gph.is/1V5I5Tz

I've just tried force-tapping all the images, but everything is instant over here. I also don't see any network request being made after initial load. Does it give any errors in your console when this happens?
