    The first step is admitting your problem . Just kidding, so many folks just do not get the importance of having your website optomized for speed.

    1: be sure all images are optimized. Most jpegs can be saved as gif saving tons of space, they should also be optimized by saving with less used colors.

    2: less images per page

    3: Dont use images where you do not have to, search engines like text!

    You can compress the file size of your images without losing too much quality by using an image cruncher.
    Try www.spinwave.com

    Re: pictures load too slow

    I see this happen alot - ppl add so many pics to their page that the load time slows down big time... and visitors end up closing the page before t even loads fully
    I think changing photo's to gifs is a great way to begin allowing your page to load faster...
    Another great way is to minimize the photo's to what is needed. If it's an online store that has 25 item per page you may want to lessen that to a smaller number and add extra pages... or use thumbnails that link to the info page for each item photgraphed that way the images all load at a faster pace...

    But I do not know what type of site you have so I can't really give better suggestions...

    Re: pictures load too slow

    spinwave com (sorry haven't posted enough to add a link yet)
    recommended above is not an active site.

    I would like to decrease the size of my images and keep the quality. The gif version of my first attempt look like crap and was still half the size of the orig.

    I like opensource, freeware, I have Gimp and inkscape, what else could I use to quickly convert these files and save as much quality as possible?
