If a pic is loaded directly into the site, it auto-resizes and only shows as a thumbnail. It's only big if you click on it. Th ones that are links show big right off the bat.
Also, it's here and not apt to be a broken link later when someone re organizes their photobucket acc't

I have the same problem, I'm a few miles from town and have dsl however it is very slow and somewhat glitch y .
Perhaps someone can chime in and offer suggestions. I've been thinking about getting a smartphone and tethering to it or getting a mobile hotspot. The G3 would be the best we could hope for in this area. Currently I'm using a dumb phone.
To watch youtube or download anything of any size I goto the Golden Arches for coffee and use a 7 inch tablet with android on it !

I see a ton of posts in the forums where the link is corrupt and there is only a small box or Icon.. That is why I prefer to load them in the site.. I usually re-size them to a regular size before uploading them. (My camera is 14 MP which is way to big for display here!)
Sorry it takes so to load long Massey!! Perhaps you can change web browsers if you are running Window explorer.. Change over to Google Chrome or Firefox.. They take up less system resources! Another item to consider is passible hardware updates may get you some more speed.. Just some thoughts for ya..

The pics uploaded to the site shouldn't cause any issues like the guys mentioned. It would be the ones that are linked to from off site which show at a fairly large size and if they are a large file size they would take a long time to load. When the links are broke on a few pics it makes it even worse because the browsers will continue to try loading the image even though it isn't there.
I always encourage anyone to upload their pictures to the site. For one we don't have to worry about pics missing because of broken links and two it resizes them just for this purpose.

For Firefox users here is some tweak to speed your load times. There are a few other guides as well google "tweaks for firefox" with out the quotes. Arti I think I would be having a conversation with the phone company you should be a lot faster on DSL then that.
There is another alternative to dial up and that is satellite but it is more expensive in fact it is more expensive then DSL. At least in my area.

We are rural and use our smartphones now for internet (Droid Verizon). At home (3G) is usually pretty fast although not as fast as it is in town (4G).
