Default Is this too slow ?

I've been building this for a friend and i wanted to make it as easy as possible to update as she regularly has images to upload. She's clueless with computers so I get the job of adding the images.

I'm using css to resize the ORIGINAL images as thumbs so the page takes a while to load.

Take a look and tell me what you think (it isn't finished yet, don't laugh !)

EDIT: site URL: www.lucky-stripe.com/NEW

Cheers
Rob

Ha ha. Was just about to ask you for a link!

It's not too slow here mate. The top images load fine and the other thumbs have loaded by the time I have scrolled down. Don't fret it. Love that 1950s scooter. ***k the Turner Prize...that is art.

Not slow for me, I'm on a 2MB line. Very nice site, excellent design and graphics, I bet your client is very pleased.

Cheers Pete - it's a freebie for a friend so I'm trying not to spend too much time on it - It hasn't worked though, I think I'm getting a bit OCD about the design.

I'm even using the DW standard .js rollovers rather than css. Lazy Lazy

Not impressed with the download time of the page, but it wasn't so long I got irritated.
The page slows down my browser though. The greybox hardly worked, it came up really slow. Aren't DJ teaching you how to generate thumbnails? If not you should check it out.

yeah - the lightbox is really slow - it seemed to be like that when i tested it with one image though - i wonder why?. maybe it's loading over the thumbs that it doesnt like?

I'll keep testing - I'm not happy with it yet.

Cheers DoMedia

Yeah, that is probably a better approach mate. Much quicker download and still clear what/where the galleries are.
