    Exclamation jQuery/GalleryView page load time issue

    I really need some help

    http://www.danadoumani.com/portfolio-res.htm (6-10 sec load right now)

    I can't figure out how to get:
    1) the page to load faster
    2) at least the loading graphic (loader.gif) to load right away so users know something's coming...

    I have found the following links that may help, but have no idea how to incorporate them with the GalleryView script I've employed...

    http://www.appelsiini.net/projects/lazyload
    http://www.filamentgroup.com/lab/upd...s_with_jquery/
    http://hungred.com/how-to/preload-jquery/

    We've also tried optimizing the images to make them lighter on the server... the thumbnails are auto cropped from the images... and I don't know how to fix that either (or if that would help).

    Many thanks,
    B

    Thanks Seco!

    I know I'm about to ask an idiot question but the GalleryView Script is auto scaling, might you know what code I have to change to point the script to the thumbs and what code I need to add to the html to have it call for the thumbs?

    If yes, thank you in advance!

    it is... I just have one set of images in the gallery folder & the script makes the thumbs from them with a crop command... I'm happy to create the thumbs, just not sure how to change the script...
