Preload slideshow

I have built a slideshow on my page…

There are several images so I’ve added a simple static preloader.
The slides are set to auto play however, after the page has finished loading and the preloader fades out the first image displayed is not often (depending on connection speed) the first slide in the sequence. It seems like the slides are ‘autoplaying’ as soon as the page starts to load.
Is there a way to have the autoplay of the slides start only after the preloader has finished fading out.
