How do I lower my image quality so that it doesn't take that long to load? Is there an option I must change or what?

Hi Joke

I take it your using a PC - if so right click on your images before uploading them and scroll down to properties. This information window will tell you how big your images are.

They should be no bigger then 100kb anything over the 80kb mark may even still take longer then necessary to load. If you are up loading images that are in Mb (megabytes) then you drastically need to reduce the file size.

Most image software packages will allow you to save the image as a reduced Jpg file. I use Photoshop to edit my images as it has a scroll bar that allows you to reduce the file size manually before saving.

I hope this helps
