Hi Peter

I am sorry that you are angry about this. We would like to help you.

My first guess is that the pictures on your site are too large for web friendly images and need to be compressed. However, for me to give more specific help I need to take a look at your actual site. Can you post the URL so that we can investigate further?

Use the built in Picnik options to edit the photos size down. (its as easy to use as Yola is)

Hello Peter,

Your images seem to be about 200 or so Kb each and theres about a dozen of them on the page. That means approx 2.5 megabytes of download. That's a lot.

I think your best bet would be to compress most of your image files. They're all of high resolution and show well when you look at the enlarged images that's for sure. I think you can still reduce the file size say to 100 kb each and still show a good quality image.

If you're not happy with the image after you compress it what about selecting just a few of your favourite images and compressing the rest say to 50 Kb's each, retaining your favourites at the 200Kb size?

The real thing is that viewers won't stay around while your web-page loads and you don't want that I'm sure. Have a think about your options and try various things out. It is a game of some compromise but you are probably far more critical of your work than most of your viewers will be :)
