Hopefully, by the end of the month I will have those photos fixed for you.

We have to move hosting servers because our current one cannot handle the database stuff. E-mail might be a bit tricky for a day or two also.

I quit loading this page to come post this. it's absurd. there are 35 photos that are the size of my thumbmail on the page but many of them are REALLY just under 200k each and if you right click and "view image" they pop up like this:



and what's WORSE, is when you click on it normally to view the picture, it's SMALLER!!!



WHY would you make us load like 5 megabytes of thumbnails for no reason? I know you can resize images. The proof is right here in my post.

Also frustrating that the thumbnails are so small, I can't even tell what they are to enlarge them. I have to do trial and error.

I'm not pulling punches today. this is terrible web design.

i agree, the thumbnails should be resized...loading time is insane.

One user was also complaining on here that they couldn't access one of the PDF files on your website since the link code has an extra single quote after it. It's one of the install manuals. You might want to pass that on to the coder.

I think it's all of them actually. You can still view them by deleting the apostrophe in the navigation bar but that's pretty silly.

You will have to blame me. We all know I am not the web guru, but this was my choice.
The thumbnails are sized at 100 x 71 @ 72 resolution.
The med size photos are 300 x 200 @ 72 resolution.

If you click on a thumbnail (after the page has finished loading), it will change the med size photo area to the photo you just clicked on.

If you click on the med size photo, it will load the larger photo. That is a large file, again my choice, because people like to see the detail. It is max - 900 x 600 @ 72 resolution.

If you click on the thumbnail before the page is finished loading, it will link it to the med photo on a new page. I did not realize this was happening until it was up. So I will see if i can change it.

I thought it worked well. But ya'll don't like the larger files?

I think the issue is that it appears the thumbnails are using the larger file size and the browser is being instructed to resize. You should make a separate resized file for the thumbnails, and then have the larger pictures load on demand.

There is a seperate file for the thumnails. They are 101 x 71. The browser may be re-sizing the icon/thumbnail smaller, but it should be loading the smaller image.

Looking at the source files....the thumbnails ARE loading the 100X71 sized pictures.

Example of thumbnails picture's source,

Not syaing the sire doesn't have it's fair share of little problems, but all in all it's really not that bad.

no. they aren't. here's a few random lines.

Code:
<a href="images/products/246/mid_size/MT_RadPlate.jpg" rel="enlargeimage::click" rev="loadarea" >
        <img class="imageIcons" src="images/products/246/icons/MT_RadPlate.jpg" />
      </a>
          <a href="images/products/246/mid_size/02_Miata_waterbypass_installed2.jpg" rel="enlargeimage::click" rev="loadarea" >
        <img class="imageIcons" src="images/products/246/icons/02_Miata_waterbypass_installed2.jpg" />
      </a>
take the first IMG line. it points to "images/products/246/icons/MT_RadPlate.jpg" right?

or
Code:
www.bellengineering.net/images/products/246/icons/MT_RadPlate.jpg
which is this:



the photos in the ICONS directory are not icons. that page loads 6mb of data.

it doesn't matter how big the images appear. you can put height and width numbers in the IMG tag and make a 10mb photo 10x10 pixels and it's going to load the whole 10mb each time.

here is the s5 page:
http://www.bellengineering.net/produ...roducts_id=248

pick an icon under the image. right click on it. select "view image".
