I have one website in particular that I have built in FW. It seems to take longer than most sites to load. It is quite a big site. Lots of pages and quite a few photo galleries. It doesn’t have any flash on it.
It there a way that I can make it load a bit quicker? Is there something I can do to condense the code in FW?
They use a JQuery based slideshow set up. Looks to be using a simple fader rather than the Carousel action. Your image file sizes are somewhat large, but not unbearable. The demo site that you showed only uses 11, really 10, images in the rotation while you have significantly more.
Also, rule of thumb for me is always keep images at least 100 kb and below for slideshows, which you’ve done, however there are a couple of them over that.
Yes but you would have to redo the Webcrusher every time you made a change to yourv FW site.
More importantly adjust the output of your FW images in the inspector where you can set the quality as a % - I think the default is 85%.That is assuming that youn haven’t imported the images as pass-throughs.
Try adjusting downwards for selected images until you get a quality that you are happy with.
If you are using pass-throughs then adjust using PShops Save for Web settings.
