A Question about Images

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

Hi followers,
I was hoping to ask you a question toady: is my blog too image-heavy?

I personally love to see images in the blogs that I follow, but I know that people may not have the capacity to easily view big pages of high res pics. I realise the name of my blog makes this post a tad ironic ;)

Anyway, I can cut down on images per post if people are finding it hard, or I can show less posts on my front page if that would help also.

Would love to hear what you think :)

So just one little image for today (because I can't help myself)

I love this Talia Vest pattern by sweaterbabe

It's a free download and I would love to have a go, but I'm not sure I'm good enough at reading knitting patterns. I'm going to have a read and see if I can interpret it :)

  1. I like photos. I should use more of them...but that means I'd have to get off my lazy back end and take more. Oh well.

  2. I love to see lots of photos and with a cable high speed broadband I never have trouble viewing but I understand that others might. I tend to put lots of photos on my blog too and never really think that people might have trouble viewing them. Perhaps I should put less in mine.

  3. Thanks :)

    sassypackrat - mm I don't think you use too many - I'll let you know what people think about mine though & we can both consider :)
    If I were to choose a way to make mine run faster I would probably opt for having less posts on the front page than reducing the pictures per post. I'm sure a lot of people read using RSS readers anyway, I do :)

  4. I like the images please keep them.

  5. The images are good for me too (and not too slow)

    If you're concerned - maybe you can go with thumbnailing, but it's a bit more work.
