you mean slices? use an image editor
i would first look to see if the image size can be optimised and or resized, if it is taking so long to download

Yes, agree with Ed. Save for web and 70 - 80% in Photoshop should do it. This strips out meta data and slims images right down. By 'Save for web' I do NOT mean 'Save as HTML'...this is totally different and to be avoided!

Depending on the image of course I would see if you cannot optimize it even more than 70%.

Cutting it up will *increase* load time, not decrease it.

Shouldn't be a problem as long as you have optimised the image for web as I described earlier.

The reason you don't want to slice it up is the increase of HTTP requests to the server. A browser only downloads so many files simultaneously, so by keeping the file count down, you're in a way optimizing the website for speed.

Where have you got those figures from ?
From the actual file (right) or have you resized it in Dreamweaver (wrong)
Do you kow how big (in file size) the image is?
Can you show us the image?

So many questions . . .Sorry. Answers to those will help greatly.
