Hey!

More pictures in our gallery at www.crossandcrescent.org.uk
If you're using dial-up, loading the pictures might take you a long while.

:D

Eeeek! your site is slow even on my 8mb line, I bet it's a modem killer for the 30% of the uk still using dialup, Please use real thumbnails instead of making the browser scale the full images.

Rant Mode OFF

Why 356 colour gif and not jpg/png ?

Funny, I found it to be quite quick myself, maybe it's your ISP?

Loads up fine, quick and slick.

PZ, interesting opening statement re religion, I think it is too defensive, you may not be Christians, but the crusades were 'religious' whether in terms of individuals or the pretexts for them. Just comes across as a little too apologetic, although I know what you are getting at. :)

Nothing wrong with my ISP and that's not really the point... doing the page that way means downloading (for example saturday medieval battle) 24mb of data but if you used thumbnails you only use about 520k of data so theoretically the page would display 48 times faster.

Sorry about the rant but this is a pet peeve of mine, it wastes bandwidth, makes pages impossible to view on dialup (roughly 2 hours to load) & eats up my monthly allowance.

I know, the main bit is temporary at the moment, until someone else writes it up. :) (Have removed that text, thanks for pointing it out! :oops: )

For others: Sorry about the speeds for the pics loading up for those who have dial up, its all about my laziness. :P We have a 20 meg line so our pics load very quick. :twisted:

(Severin, have pmd you)

Brilliant photos, both of you, although I appear to be gurning in most of them. :D (Thus speaketh the truly unphotogenic!)

Great photos - thanks to both of you to sharing...

Peacezone, the photos loaded up fine.

Severin, Peacezone warned us about the large file sizes. There might be better ways of doing it but I for one am very grateful to her for being kind enough to share her photos.

Great shots PZ, gutted I couldn't be there - holidaying in Wales (near Harlech - great castle!). I'm on for Caldicott though, are you all there? If so, get Beauseant raised and lets put the fear of God into the heathen!

Your pics don't need to be thumbnails, just reduced to a size optimised for the web - most screens only display at 72 ppi, anything over that in an image is wasted data and increases file sizes and subsequently download times. 640 x 480 @ 72, can't go wrong.

eeeek! great, back to slow loading and tiny images. people put 80 or 90 pictures on a page, using 640x480 means 10 times the data to download compared to using thumbnails. I think it's far better to spend a couple of minutes to create thumbnails to attach to a larger 1024 x 768 image thereby giving the viewer the option of downloading the large images instead of forcing them too. Detail is important when examining costumes ;-)

Forgot that people still have monthly allowances, admittedly dont have the originals on my site as the main picture -3 mb files or so :)
