jQuery callback on image load (even when the image is cached)

If the src is already set, then the event is firing in the cached case, before you even get the event handler bound. To fix this, you can loop through checking and triggering the event based off .complete, like this:

$("img").one("load", function() {
  // do stuff
}).each(function() {
  if(this.complete) {
      $(this).load(); // For jQuery < 3.0 
      // $(this).trigger('load'); // For jQuery >= 3.0 

Note the change from .bind() to .one() so the event handler doesn’t run twice.
