    Default What is the best way to display pictures with out slowing down your webpage?

    Hi,I want to add some more pictures to my pages without slowing down the loading time too much. I use currently use lightboxes to display pictures of my work. Should I just keep adding lightboxes? I don't want to make the thumbniles any smaller. Is there a better method I should use? Please have a look and let me know what you suggest.

    OMG! You certainly have a huge amount of "light-box" images on your homepage. Personally I would NEVER have that many. Surely you could categorise (eg. brick stairs,flagstone,porch,etc.) on separate pages and have a lot more room for that all important text content.I've since noticed that you do have separate links but a few more wouldn't hurt I'm certain. Just by and by,the page loaded very quickly with my fast internet connection,but slower ones could have problems.

    One thing that you could do is reduce the size of the pictures. I use PIXresizer. It dramatically reduces file sizes. I took one of you pictures that was about 88Kbytes and reduced it was about 47Kbytes. The quality of the picture isn't really affected. The program itself is extremely easy to use and is free.
