Question: How can I control the order of how the images load on a Web page?
Answer:

Most browsers interact with the Web servers in a sequential manner, so they will start loading an image that appears first in the HTML before an image that appears later. There isn't any way to control the order of images loading on Web pages using HTML.

However, if an image was loaded on a previous page, it will usually be in the browser cache and will load more quickly. Also, you can use JavaScript to affect the load of images by setting timeouts on the visibility.
