If I have a preview of a large image, does it download the entire image, resize it, and then display it? Or does it download only the information it requires to make the scaled image?
Basically what I want to know is is it worth my while creating smaller preview images and uploading them too as well as the full-size high-resolution images?

As far as I know it downloads the WHOLE image and then scales it down.

Ah that's a shame. Making preview images would be so much easier if it didn't!

Well think about it for a second.
How could a browser on the client side possibly have the necessary information to make a scaled image unless it has the whole thing available to it?

You can use a php (or other client side) script that accepts a width and height and then resizes the image accordingly, that way the client only has to download the already-thumbnailed image.
:confused: :confused: :eek:
But if its the same image then its the same content coming down the pipe and then resized by the height and width attributes. Isn't php server side anyway?
