There is a strange flash of white then grey background when getting on the current website, in the home page.

Do you know how to fix that?

I attach the three images in one.  That it is happening in less than 6 seconds (when the site is loading). My website with WordPress is installed in

It looks to me like the images are large enough to take longer to load than the rest of the site.  The flash that you are seeing is most likely the background color of the fader.  If you change the background in the fader settings to the same color as the background of your site (or none, or transparent), then the "flash" should stop, and the space will just be briefly empty while the images finish loading.

Another option would be to reduce the filesize of your images so they download to the browser faster.
