Hello,
This may have been posted somewhere but does anyone know how to make images on a website load faster? The images are loading extremly slow and they are not large.??

well, either host them on a faster server, or change their format, usually .jpg is good :) or you can do both, faster server/change format into .jpg :)

a small fyi :) you cant just change the extentions (eg... from .bmp - .jpg) it'll keep the sdame file size, you'll have to use a program liek ACDSee or Photoshop and do it liek that, if you want I can do it for you.

It's all about optimizing images, quality and size.

yep,yep :) actually if you 've got photostop "ms_dell" you can open the image in their, and save as.... .jpg "its in the list ;)" and when it's on the compression bar, slid it to 4 :) 4 looks just as good as ten, but it's smaller:) in file size.

Make the webpage less image-intensive?

Photoshop has an option for "Export for Web", use that.. it usually does a good job. Makes tiny tiny images. ACDSee is also good.
