Order of image loading

Hello,
is it possible to configure Tigra Hints (or anything else) to make the browser load tooltip images after the rest of a page is loaded?
I have a page with small images [as a preview] and large images which appear as tooltips. However, when the page is being loaded, the browser loads the big tooltip images first. Which is a little problem for users with slow connection.

Thanks for any tips.
Filip

Never mind, I've just solved it. The trick is to use a small transparent picture (1x1) as an image hint for all images and put the loading of real hint images to onLoad event of <body> tag. Then the images are replaced after the rest of the page is loaded.
