I did a little test to cure my curiosity and found some interesting results. Anyone else having troubles look at some posts and they take forever to load the pics and then some load just fine? I know I have. Well I did a test in the "Test Forum" and found that when you upload your pics from photobucket the pictures will load much faster when someone looks at the post. I made three separate posts 1 was uploading the pic directly from my PC, 2 was uploading the pic to my albums in SMF then uploading the link to the post and 3 was uploading the pic to photo bucket and posting the direct link in the post. If you look at the three posts you will see that the photo bucket post loads the pic much faster. At least it does here. I am guessing that photo bucket has a bigger Upload connection or that so many people are loading to SMF that it is slowing down the connection. Either way I think I will continue to use photobucket just so my pics load faster in my posts. Just wanted to bring this up as I was getting frustrated with how slow the pictures would load.
