    JAVA - Multiple Images loading too slow

    All,

    Newbie to the JAVA world. Would appreciate any help I can get here. I've just updated my website to include a cool java slide-show pop up:

    http://www.cohanweb.com/home.html

    This works great! Except, if you click on an image before all the thumbnails are loaded, it just opens it full-size in a new window, bypassing the slideshow. Now, I know I can use a "pre-load script" to load all the images prior to arriving at this page. But, is there an alternate method? Perhaps it's possible just to have the slideshow start regardless of whether or not the images have been loaded? I can post all the code HTML / CSS / JAVA if necessary. Guess I was hoping there would be an easy answer. Thanks!

    -Evan

    Your 60 75x75 thumbnail images weighing in at ~20k is quite a load. Around 1121139 bytes. Reduce their size to speed up the loading.

    By the way, its JavaScript , not Java

    Thanks, good advice. I just got them down to about 2KB each, but it's still not loading as quickly as I'd like. Perhaps it's my Internet connect though. Any other JAVASCRIPT tips? (sorry about the mis-usage of the term!)
