    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.

    Mine took a bit longer to load on Safari than Firebox (browser). They loaded bar by bar. I couldn't check which pics loaded best as while they were loading my screen 'froze' for about 15 seconds and wouldn't let me scroll down. A good Mac with high speed fibre optic. I have a load of filters in place, which I'm sure slows opening and loading quite a bit (Adblock, Ghostery, Https, Hit Hider).

    On my phone (iphone 6, Safari) all four images took 30 seconds to load. All loaded at the same speed, bar by bar at the same time (not one after the other).

    On a clunky old iPhone 4 they all loaded together, taking a little under 30 seconds.

    As I scroll up and down the page, they appear, disappear and appear again.🧐

    All loaded a bit slower than I  would like but acceptable

    Number one started to load and then stopped and all I see is four small blue boxes with question marks in them  :/

    After eight mins only the first had loaded completely but the others were nearly there. However I wouldn't really have the patience to wait that long!
