Currently, when high resolution images load on your site, a low resolution
image is displayed first. This is the behavior across all Wix sites, and a lot
of sites on the web. This technology has no effect on the rest of your site's
content, including the high-resolution images themselves. It lets your site
visitors see more meaningful content faster at no performance cost to you.

It is not possible to disable this behavior.

We are always working to update and improve our products, and your feedback is
hugely appreciated.
