Hi guys,

I have an image sized 950x200px that I need to use on the main banner of my page, what would be the fastest way of getting this to load when the page is visited, cut it up and float the images side by side perhaps?

Thanks in advance.

no, multiple requests (i.e separate images) increases resource requirements and its less efficient (hence why sprites are such a great thing)

you could use photoshop or similar to compress the image/save it for the web, try different formats etc.

you can create the image in jpeg medium quality, that will reduce the image size for faster downloadd.

slicing up will not make much difference

You can also interlace it so that it more quickly becomes clear what the image depicts, although this will make the overall image larger (i.e., you create the impression of faster loading at the expense of making it load slightly slower).
