    I have a site that has a picture gallery on it and has four pics in each page. The site is about 14 pages long - all picture galleries. If I combines these pics into less pages and make them thumbnail pics with the option to click to enlarge - Will this help??? I don't want to pay for extra bandwidth for this site because it doesn't make me any money anyway. I should just let it go offline and say screw the monkeys. LOL!!

    But what can I do to decrease the bandwidth?? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    Jada,

    Besides the obvious .... (optimize the pics) I would make two pages (28 per), if not one, of thumbnails and or including text descriptions of the pics, as to allow for more info so that can decide weather to view the image or not.

    Jada, Irfan View has an automatic thumbnail production tool. They aren't as good as doing them all by hand in Photoshop, but they're fast.

    Besides being FREE ...

    Irfan View is the easiest tool for quick manipulation of graphic files I have found.

    P.S. - Irfan ... is the name of the guy who made the program. I wondered what an Irfan was [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
