For the past couple of years I've been capturing lots of screenshots during strategy-game playing and posting them in various gaming forums (via Photobucket) with no problem, but just lately when I've logged onto the forums the pics that I've already posted usually take a full two minutes or so to display, compared to just a few seconds like they used to.
Any idea why? I'm Win XP Home, not too PC-literate..
PS - I use JPEG format mostly but just lately have been mixing in some PNG's because the definition is a bit better, so do you think forums are slower at displaying PNG's, perhaps that's the cause of the problem?

Hey MickinPlymouthUK!

It could be because of PNGs. Although the quality is better, the file size is much larger. So, it will take a little bit longer to load. Especially, if it isn't optimized for web.

You can use: Web Graphics Optimizer. It's a free download and you can save as PNG and optimize the image as well, so that should help with the loading problem. :flowers:

Let me know if this helps. :thumbsup:
