Novice to Ninja Ajax Gallery Question


I’m making my way through jQuery Novice to Ninja and I’m finding that when I try chapter_06/08_ajax_image_gallery_improved/ the new gallery loads underneath the current gallery before it has had a chance to fade out. So it appears below while the gallery above fades out and then it moves up into place.

It seems like the “success” is firing too soon? This happens in Firefox, Safari and Opera (IE and Chome don’t load any images I assume because the file is local).

Is anybody else seeing the same thing?

Thanks for any advice on making the example work properly.
