how does everyone else compress there images.


Photoshop
file > open
select all
file > new OK
edit > copy
image > image size
.. whatever you want as the new size
file > save for web

Now there are choices in the 'settings' that appear. Plus you can show the image alone, or in '2 up' and '4 up' modes. Choose jpg as the image type, adjust quality / compression to suit (there's a preview).  When you're happy, click the save button.

ah, ok thanks, I will do that on all the images then, and see how htey all turn out in the end, will this be enough to make them load fast enough, or should I put in pre-load too, or is there something else I can do, or will this be enough to make it load fast.


The smaller the number of bytes that get downloaded, the faster it will be :)

pre-loading makes the visitor wait for all the pre-loaded files to arrive (hence the name), then displays the page with pre-loaded images now 'instantly' available.  You can wait at the start or wait in the middle. There's no free lunch.

Photoshop:
once the file is ready->
Ctrl + Alt + Shift + S ->
set file type and turn resolution down to about 64 ->
save it...

reduces some files as much as 60%
You can't win, you can't lose, you can't break even... you can't even get out of the game.

... or should I put in pre-load too,...


Am I talking Chinese or what? I already told you TWICE, once VERY VERY explicitly that preloading will NOT NOT NOT NEVER EVER NO WAY reduce latency.

You're just not listening!

If you wanted to know WHY preloading doesn't reduce latency, all you had to do was ask.

from the numbered name posted 4410 something


How very respectful.  >:(

I'll try and behave, but I have to admit my blood is boiling right now.... :-X

2 questions
1. how does it not reduce latency, what is latency, and what  does the number in your name stand for.
And sorry I called you some number, I was too lazy to look it up.

Lazy you are indeed. It took me about 3 seconds to find you a definition of latency!

Edit: for the record; 3 seconds, that is less time than it takes to post a question asking for a definition.

Andy already explained the why to you, don't tell me you need it explained again.

Not that it is any of your business but 44, 81 and 91 are the years three people I cared much for were born. They all died in a 2 year timeframe.

Nah, I'm f***ing with ya. It's my personalnumber at work.
