Multi-stage image loading

Hi everyone,

I'm working on a website and I would like to have images enhance in quality when loading. For instance; 1st one: 720p 2nd: 1080p 3rd: 2160p. How do I do this?

Thanks for your help!

Try this one and tell why it's not the way you need. https://api.jquery.com/load-event/

«For example, consider a page with a simple image:

<img src="book.png" alt="Book" id="book">

The event handler can be bound to the image:

$( "#book" ).load(function() {
  // Handler for .load() called.

As soon as the image has been loaded, the handler is called».
