I am currently working on a horizontal image slideshow. I have around 35 large and high quality images that are simply aligned next to each other and the slideshow is controlled by horizontal scolling.
My problem is that the images take very long to load and the slideshow is constantly lagging. I have even added a preloader but it isnt really helping.
Is there any way to compress my pictures?
What is your average image filesize?
- don't use images straight out of a camera, especially DSLR's - they tend to be mb heavy;
- use .jpg
- resize as needed, example resize or crop images to the viewable area you are showcasing;
You can resize, crop or output for web using a variety of free or commercial applications.
What graphics application do you have at hand?
Thank you! I made the basic mistake of using the images straight from the camera.
Resized them and now its working perfectly!
