One of the most requested feature by CU3ER users was to have more complete branding options in CU3ER. As many of you concerns that CU3ER brand removing sometimes might not just be enough, we’ve listened you and created requested feature - Custom CU3ER Preloader.
What is Custom CU3ER Preloader?
It's basically CU3ER preloader made from your custom image. This way you can create more personalized loading animation which will nicely blend to the rest of your web page . For example, you can make preloader from your company logo, slogan, illustration or whatever you think is suitable.
How it works?
Just define image (source image) you would like to use as CU3ER Preloader. That image will be duplicated and CU3ER will use one copy for front ‘loader’ image and other one for back ‘background’ image. Loading progress indication is shown through simple reveal effect of front over back image in 1 of 4 available directions: up, down, left and right. Setting color & alpha values for loader and background are also available.
Take a look at following example:
What is the best image format for Custom Preloader?
Should I always use Custom Preloader as loading indicator?
Of course not. This is one of many available options for CU3ER users and you don’t have to use it at all. Instead there is ‘linear’ and ‘circular’ default preloaders available.
My Custom Preloader needs time to show up, please advise?
Optimize your image to as small file size as you can. It’s crucial to keep it small as you don’t want to wait to long before preloading image is loaded.
Can I use Custom Preloader as slide loader?
No. Custom preloader is only available as CU3ER loader. For slide loader you can use default preloader symbols.
I'm FREE account holder, can I use Custom Preloader?
Unfortunately not. Custom Preloader and CU3ER brand removal features are available to PRO account holders only.
