* Seriously. This isn't a brag. This is a hand me down computer and it is literally more powerful than every computer I have ever owned together. I have no idea what to do with this thing. I don't even want to know what his new computer is capable of.
Try getting into 3D rendering. You really don't want to know how much computer power a large render in Poser can use if you crank up the quality and have multiple light sources and shadows going on.
Edit: I just looked at the thread and decreasing the file size should be your first option. I think there is so many and such big files that it is a lot to load at once.
I agree. File size is important. From what I saw, your images are all JPGs. You can usually get away with quite a bit of jpg compression unless you are dealing with an image that will be closely examined. A few small compression artifacts shouldn't be a problem. I doubt many people will notice them unless you go completely overboard with the compression, and your images seem to be intended to create a strong first impression. They will still do that if you use a bit of compression.
You could also try to crop a few images just a little. An image cropped (not resized!) from, say... 1000x1000 to something that's 900x900 will reduce the are of the image by 20% (from 1mio to 810k pix). That's 20% less data to save into the file at the cost of maybe cutting out a few minor background elements.
Something unrelated that I noticed is that I scroll through the image thread pretty fast, once it has loaded (which happens at a reasonable speed - not great, but okay) until I spot an image that grabs my attention. If you want to use this to capture writing partners you might want to think about adding a bit more text to the thread that describes your ideas and/or make the text you already have more noticeable (boldface, font size, etc.). At the moment it strikes me as "whoa! cool images", but not so much as "what does this person want to do with this inspiration", if you know what I mean?
