I am a little confused why my pages load slowly into web browsers. I
use the proper art file formats and chop down their sizes with
photoshop web settings.
A number of things come to mind…
First of all, don’t bother yourself with exporting sliced bits from
Photoshop! Just save your graphic - in one piece - as a Photoshop
document. Or, if you’re a Freeway Express user, as a PNG document.
Freeway will optimise your images for you, automatically. So work
smarter, not harder!
(I mean it - that’s not a catchphrase, it is serious advice.)
Second, are you using lots of graphic text? Misusing this lovely
feature will produce pages that don’t perform as expected.
Third… what’s the URL of your site? It is much easier to make
comments if we can all see the thing that’s causing you problems.
(Don’t forget to put http:// in front of the domain name so it is
clickable everywhere. This makes a big difference in the number of
people, myself included, who will go ahead and take a look.)
Fourth, leave Freeway to combine graphics unless you specifically
want them sliced. (Yes, that’s how you ‘do’ graphic slicing in
Freeway.) And no, grouping won’t make any difference, not to the
thing that’s bothering you.
Oh, and I’m afraid that there is no practical way at all that you can
force elements to load all at once. The Internet is built using
protocols that allow for slack, slop, and all-round flexibility.
Because of that, you have to accept (1) that things load the way they
load, and (2) they may load slightly differently the very next time.
