Using code instead of a photo

Instead of adding pictures to my home page, and saving space in the File manager, I decided to insert HTML code instead that links back to pictures I have on my hosting server. Is this a better way of doing it in terms of loading the pictures faster? My pics are around 50k each.

50k in a browser in nothing in load time - i would just show them.

You can use code that shows the image form your server rather than linking to it - it looks like this

<img src="http://whatever.com/imagename.jpg>

But the load speed would actually be mila seconds slower as it has to go and fetch the image.

Thanks Lee,

The reason I am using code is so I can save some space in the File manager. Thanks again!!!!
