    Hey, just wondering if anybody knows this..

    My work involves opening images which are big in size like 5-10 mb each.. on my browser.

    Is there a way to make them load quickly? May by be reducing their quality or size automatically, everytime it loads?

    Is something like that possible?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Well if it's something you're opening in your browser then that will only help if you can make it happen serverside. For large images transferring the file is the biggest bottleneck. Anything you do to resize the image on the browser side will still mean the whole file is being transferred.

    Well... It depends what you are doing with the images.
    Maybe a text based browser will help you :)

    you could make a seperate folder for the images called 'preview' and then batch convert all the big ones down to a smaller size

    I think opera browser has a feature where it compresses site data (images included) for increased performance on slow networks.
    Just looked it up, it's called opera turbo.
