SEO-wise, Can I Rewrite Image Links Live Via JQuery?

- 1 answer

I am designing a rather complex homepage of a website. The page will contain a slider with some images, the path of which has to be corrected on document.ready. After the path can be determined, I plan to change it in the image tags via jQuery. Until now, these images have had a valid path, but one that will be changed to another valid path.

So, the process is as follows:

  1. Page loads with some images in the slider (valid URLs pointing to some images)
  2. jQuery executes and changes the URLs of the images

Is this OK from a SEO perspective?
