Hello Fay

I have checked the file sizes of your pictures, and they're all larger than 100KB. We recommend to use pictures between 20 and 100KB for a website, depending on how many pictures you use on one page.

Please test for us, maybe on a test page, if your gallery loads more quickly when you fill it with downsized pictures.

Also, special characters in file names are generally a problem, and cause the files to not display. I saw some "&" characters in your image file names. I'd suggest to remove/replace this character and all other special characters that you may have used.

If that doesn't solve the problem, please come back to us.
