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,
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.
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.
