    website running but images load slow?

    Hi,

    I just launched my website and the galleries run a cycle slideshow using javascript. The images load very slow upon opening and it effects the cycle gallery. Any advice? Is there a way to preload or reduce the overall file size of the images?

    Thanks
    Peter

    Hi there,

    What size are your images (in terms of file size)? Are you using a jquery cycle slideshow or a different one?

    I would suggest that you check your site using YSlow, a firefox add-on, which is good for helping to figure out why pages are loading slowly.

    Hope that helps,

    Ingrid

    Hi,

    My image sizes are generally between 200 and 300 KB, maybe a couple closer to 400 KB.

    Yeah, it's a jquery cycle slideshow with a fade transition. It's not terrible it's just that sometimes the first image isn't finished loading by the time the next slide fades in.

    Thanks for tip, I'll check out yslow.

    Thanks,
    Peter

    If you have photoshop then just save them for web and devices to make them a lot smaller. Or if you don't there are sites that will optimize the image size for free.
