My gallery page is taking a really long time to load, John you had told me to decrease the file size on the pic I had on my home page. I did that with all the photos in my gallery page and it didnt make any difference. I'm not sure if Im doing it correctly though. I went to Flickr and hit edit and then resize and then if it said for example 1000x600. I cut the number in half (500x300) Maybe thats not how you resize, please let me know if I did it wrong. Check out my site and see if it takes really long for others to view.

I also read something on another person question I saw and I think I wasted a lot of time uploading all my pictures. Can you use one tag name and upload them all at once?
I was giving them each a seperate name and doing them one at a time.

Thanks Kim

Hello Kim

Wow.. what a fantastic job you have done with your tiles! I love it!

I had no problems loading up your photo page at all. If you are having some difficulty, I would suggest clearing the cache in your browser to see if this makes any difference. Here's a link on how to do this: http://www.google.com/support/account...

As for tagging your photos, in your Flickr account, if you give all the photos that you want uploaded the same tag, then you just need to use the same tag in your search function box in your site builder. This will bring up all the photos with the same tag name. You do not need to give each photo a different tag. I hope that answers your question.

Please let us know if you still have trouble with loading up your page.

Hi Kim...You did fine on scaling down the images to a decent file size.Your home page is great now and loads right up.The gallery page seems to take forever to go to but once there images load right up for me.Is that is what is happening to you also?

Hi John, I posted this earlier but it didnt seem to load, What you experienced is exactly what is happening on my end. Why would it take so long for that page to load. I tried clearing the cache as advised above but that seem to make any difference either. ( thanks Littleus ) appreciate the help

It is still doing the same here for me also....In my experience when there is a problem with images being to large of a file you can still go right to the page but the images load very slowly like your home page used to do....This seems different.....Did you maybe write your text in something like ms word then copy and paste to your page?

No, but what I did do is I did the gallery page over and copied and pasted the text from the original page instead of retyping it, I used the text from the content list on the right to do it originally

Hi Kim,
If you copy and pasted from another page on your site, can you try taking that text and putting into something like Notepad to strip out any formatting that might be affecting the page and then bring the text from Notepad into the Site Builder. This might help the problem. Let us know how it goes for you.
