You'll need to use js. Probably.

I agree with Ardav, PHP (server side scripting) will usually load and complete before an image could be seen on a page. js on the other hand is on the front side, and can start loading at the body tag as the page is loading.

<body onload="displayLoading()">

It has to do with the order in which a web page is called.
http request -> serverside script runs & completes -> sends info to client -> client side code runs and completes.

Why don't you go over to the javascript forum? Or, do some reseaarch on js page load etc yourself?
