    Loading time

    Hi,

    How come some sites with big images load so quickly?
    I know that two images of the same size in width and height can be very different in byte size, but I am talking of beautiful, high resolution images.
    I know of preloading, but from my experience preloading images helps when you want to change images quickly for example but it actually makes the site loading time even longer.
    All I use for images is:
    <img src="..."/> is there something I don't know about?
    And I am talking about pure HTML sites that are CSS valid.
    Thanks.

    High resolution = large byte size

    Yes.
    That's what I mean. Even large byte size pictures load fast on some sites.
    How do they do it?

    So that's all?
    I can't help it?
    I have to transfer my site somewhere else?

    Either a better host for your site or load your images from a fast image host.
    Do you really need such large images?

    I don't NEED such big images, but I will try loading them from somewhere else before I take more drastic measures.
    Thanks

    can you give an example of a web page with such images? Maybe they're just using highly compressed JPEGs that look good but will degrade if you try to edit it.
