I notice that we can also specify the size of the image(s):

I like this
Hi andrew, I have completed the products page and was wondering if you could help me with caching the images to help the loading of the page. My live version pretty much crashes my browser because of the amount/size of the images on my products page. I am going to send all my images through a site I found which optimizes the image file (I want them as small in size as possible) but I want to further help the loading by caching the files so the users have a better experience.
I myself got quite annoyed when the browser has 3 second delays even for scrolling down the page. I don't think many users would stay on the site or even bother looking at my products if this is happening to them.
Are there any good tutorials out there which can guide me through?
