Is there any chance you could run your whygo submissions through ImageMagick or some similar processor to make them web-sized. I imagine that in addition to improving load times, it would also be easier on your bandwidth bill. Downloading the full res file and then depending on browsers to compress it to the required dimensions seems silly...it's reminding me of the dial-up days when you could watch graphics load for a few minutes before the site looked right.

Are you talking about on the WhyGo home page, or on the photo archive pages when the images are much bigger? Do you find either take a long time to load?

Mostly, just WhyGo Today. Today's isn't huge, but yesterday, it was 3264px × 2448px (scaled to 900px × 675px), 2154.14 kB. Which was indeed slow to load. I don't normally use the home page, but it looks like it's still the same file, just scaled to different dimensions. There's actually other issues there, since the home page scales to fit in a specific sized box, and scews the pictures accordingly. It's very noticeable when the longer edge is the vertical.
