    No problem here.
    For me the biggest of many improvements, since the development of the new site, is the ease of loading photographs, before it was just too much hassle.

    Thanks again for all the work that has been done.

    They all loaded slowly and it took a bit longer than it took to read the info.   

    Thanks for looking into this Nora.

    Yes Yvie and Dove, all the images had appeared by the time I'd read through the text, but I looked in at the thread twice more from scratch to assess the loading speed of the images alone.
    None of them appeared instantly on the page.

    The first response was from my laptop.  I have just checked on mobile phone and it was slower, but they all loaded in less than a minute, that's ok for me.

    They all loaded for me, but took 8 minutes! 2 was first, then 3, then 4, 1 then loaded relatively fast as the others were out of the way. Like Kitty they all loaded together in strips, would possibly be quicker if I could do one at a time.
    I use Firefox but my internet speed is  only 0.3 Mbps.

    No. 2 loaded the quickest, but they're all a bit slow, loading bit by bit.  It makes threads like the Garden Gallery unviewable for me personally..

    Instant but I have super fast internet.. that's the troubling factor here.
