image shack pics

Respectfully submitted:

It seems that whenever anyone posts images from "image shack" my computer freezes up. - Often for a long time (10 minutes a pic). Is this because the images don't resize and are huge? Is this an issue with the forum or image shack? Does my computer just have a grudge with image shack?

This makes me very excitable.


I Love HFD!

Re: image shack pics

Good question. This site automatically resizes large images but they load fullsize first. Can you link me to a post with an image that gives you problems? What browser are you using?

I quoted it this way so it wouldn't hang up on me again. I hope it works.

This is an example. This one always hangs up on the image shack pics. I am using internet explorer.

Thank you for responding so quickly. This is driving me crazy.

Re: image shack pics

I dont think its your comp Theresa BTW how fast is your broadband? Because the55wagster is linking some mega big pictures in his posts. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 3648x2736 and weights 3753KB.

Very big file size for a slower connection.

Re: image shack pics

I have a DSL modem with wifi. (from Qwest.) I guess DSL stands for Dreadfully Slow Links.

I think Mr. Wagster needs to learn that "size isn't everything."
(I like him. I am not complaining about him even a tiny bit. I just want to post and look at pics on that picture contest thread on the same day they are posted.)

But if the prob is my bandwidth, i'm screwed. It's the best we can get.

Re: image shack pics

Mt DSL is nothing to brag about so your not the only one lagging out I'm sure. Problem should be resolved henceforth and forthwith. I'll edit those particular posts now.

Re: image shack pics

Your welcome, BTW you should resize your signature picture to a smaller size.

Re: image shack pics

It looks much nicer without that ugly yellow bar up top.
