Hey Alex,

you just have to compress the size of your images. One of your first images is 1.7mb's which is huge! You should try and cut they down to about 100kb, which is still a fair size but should load alot quicker and still retain the quality of your awsome images!

Do you have photoshop or anything that you could use to edit your images? I'l take a look and see if I can find something web-based.

Connor is right, Alex. You need to compress the size of your images. You can do through Picnik or through a program like Faststone. You can download that program for free: http://www.faststone.org/

Here's some online image compression tools, though I haven't got a chance to test all of them out:

www.stanleyshilov.com

www.imageoptimizer.net

www.shrinkpictures.com

www.jpegcompress.com

With the last one, I compressed your first image from 1.7mb's to 526.5kb's.

Alex,

Boomer left a great tip for removing even more Kb's from image file sizes.
