    What platform are you developing on? Can't you reduce the resolution of the images itself?

    Using a caching plugin is another great way to enhance the performance your website.
    A main problem many websites have when it comes to loading times is having huge images. There are many image editing applications where you can optimize your images for web, before uploading them.

    to reduce the loading time of any webpage which has high resolution images you can install super chace plug in , and find a web host that has better loading speed.

    Hope that's helpful

    You can just resize the image so, the load time will be better.

    Using a CDN ( Content distribution network ) will greatly increase performance.

    ( This one has a free option - http://www.cloudflare.com/ )

    It will REALLY help with image download speeds.

    lynxus lots of people would agree with you, however my personal experience was different. I was using the free version of CloudFlare on a forum I own and it actually slowed down the site and caused more problems than it solved. Perhaps it was just a glitch or perhaps the site was just too busy for the free version, but performance improved when we turned off CloudFlare.
