SLIDE SHOW LOADS SLOWLY...

As per the title it takes a long time before my first slide show image loads.
Is there a way to shorten this time?
Thanks
Richard.

    You are using the ORIGINAL image sizes in the source galleries, where you have collected your photos from. Some of your images are about 2 MB in file size, which is why it takes such a long time for them to be loaded.

    On top of that - you are also using one of the images as the BACKGROUND IMAGE for your homepage. So there is a lots of content loading on the homepage.

    How to solve this issue?
    In the source gallery, where you have collected your images from - please open the GALLERY SETTINGS and change the MAXIMUM DISPLAY SIZE to something like X4 or X5.

    This will then allow our system to display your images optimised for web - instead of loading the original versions, especially on larger screens.
