    All appeared instantaneously for me - as for Mark56 and Joyce but I also have super fast broadband

    All the images were there immediately for me too. On a laptop with standard BT Broadband. I refuse to pay for superfast as we are 1/2 mile from the box & it's all copper wire from there.

    All photos loaded pretty well instantly.  17.2mb/s according to the speed tester (thanks, @Hampshire Hog).

    All loaded instantly but I'm lucky and have a super fast broad band of 8+mb/s upload speed.
    I regularly check my speed with this speed tester to ensure I'm getting what I pay for.
    It's download speed you need but if you have good upload you'll have significantly better download in any case, probably 3x.

    Speed is 6.9 and 0.8 mbps. Number 4 was the quickest by far, 1 and 2 very slowly and 3 was the slowest by far.

    All 4 loaded but #1 was really slow & loaded. #2 & #4 were immediate and #3 was faster than 1 but slower than #2 & #4.

    All loaded slowly for me, especially No.1, but then my download speed is only 4.60 mbps with BT standard broadband.

    As for file size, 5MB is way too big and needlessly large for web images that are just going to be viewed. Just about every image I have posted on here has been between 400KB and 800KB and 1024p on the longest side, anything larger is just a waste of bandwidth.

    But, I appreciate that some are not able to resize an image for web use and download there pictures straight from the camera/phone/tablet, hence the larger file size.
