    Hi and thanks,

    It's really the first link off of the gallery (weddings) that I am talking about the others are to be updated I wasn't going to use flicr even tho I like the full screen option ( I do believe they use a loader )

    Link: http://www.globalglam.co.uk/WeddingGallery.php

    I am using a slider I was recommended on Dyamicdrire. Simple Controls Gallery v1.4

    Any idea's on floating pages?? Or where to post the question and is it possible?

    Thanks,

    Travis

    Just to illustrate the negligible difference after optimisation - please open them up side-by-side to compare;

    Your original/current image - 407kb
    http://www.globalglam.co.uk/images/G...leryslider.jpg

    Optimised image - 60%, high quality preset in Photoshop - 108kb
    http://fofwebdesign.co.uk/template/_...-optimised.jpg
    (Photoshop is by no means the best optimisation tool but its convenient for me to quickly show you the difference)

    I don't know about you, but I'd be very happy to use the optimised version, and at a quarter of the size (and therefore, a quarter of the download time) I'm sure your visitors would be very happy if you used the optimised version too

    And just imagine how much of a saving you'll make once you've optimised ALL of those gallery images - a good few MBs at least!
