How to make images on my website load faster?

5 replies
Hi guys,

I've a website with lots of images.

I notice I have to wait a while for them to load up.

So how do I make them load faster?

Change the format of the images? Most of them are gif, some are jpeg and a few are png.

      Something else you can try if it is an HTML page is to make sure you don't have too many images loaded in any one particular table.

      If your page is broken up into different tables the images will load in a different sequence than if all of them are just in one large table.

        Not sure how true this is though. Maybe someone else can shed some light.
