    I added a companion site to iamnotjerry.com My picture sizes are too big and load slow. (Thus my post on batch compression)

    Would appreciate your thoughts and suggestions:

    It doesn't matter what site you stick up there you need to resize all images for the web or, as you can see, they slow load or, like you sometimes get on here, they are just too big to fit on screen. H

    Not sure if yuo use a Macintosh or not, but it has a built-in System Level feature called Automator. Automator allows you to do all sorts of automated actions, which are assembled piecemeal.

    Check out Ben Long and his web site. He is a force in this field. His how-to videos on-line might help you.

    http://www.completedigitalphotography.com/

    Photoshop (full versions) can also perform automatic re-sizing of images. I could not begin to explain how to do it in a web post...you could search for video tutorials on-line and probably learn how it is done.

    Good to see you back here, even if briefly.

    I read a statistic once. I don't remember the %, but most people will hit the back button if the page doesn't load within the first 10 seconds.

    Personally, I wouldn't wait that long. Your page loads waaaaaay too slow. Like H. said, resize your images. Even at a resolution of 1920x1280 (the largest screen resolution likely encountered on your website) images should load within a few seconds.

    Another thing you can do, is save the images as progressive JPGs. That way, the image will load low quality, then a little better, then a little better, and so on until the entire image is full quality. That way, your visitors have *something* to look at while the image is loading.

    How have you put this website together ? I have built an uploader into a website I made for a friend which resizes photos into various sizes when it is uploaded using imagemagik...

    Thumbnail
    Medium
    Web
    Original

    If you need any pointers let me know.

    I followed the link above and it seems to have helped. I had to delete all my photograhs and upload new, thus none on home page: My Foto World
    Check it out and let me know.

    I have followed the suggestions and was able to batch resize the photos in Lr3. Now they load much faster. I now need to adjust he quality of the photographs.
    Thanks to everyone for your help~
