how many images can be in a gallery?

    when I create a page and I insert [ gallery ]
    how many images can I put in that page,
    so the page will load fine on anyone's computer .
    ...such as this page I have over 300+ images in the gallery,
    is that too much for wordpress gallery page to load?
    see pics of me on this page, does all 300+ load for you?

    also, does the [ slideshow ] slow the images to load in the gallery?

    Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

    alos, an idea, is there anyway the [ gallery ] code could be different and make the gallery appear in numeral orders in sets o f 20 or so?
    hope this makes sense. thanks again

  2. I don't believe there is an limit to the number of images we can upload into a gallery. There isn't a limit stated here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/gallery/

    I have over 300+ images in the gallery,
    is that too much for wordpress gallery page to load?

    I don't think the number of images is a WordPress.com issue at all. I think it's a common sense issue. Consider the different devices that visitors access your site, consider the different ways they connect (dial-up, DSL, wireless, etc.), consider that we all pay to be online and then ask yourself what the tolerance limits might be.

    see pics of me on this page, does all 300+ load for you?

    I'm sorry but I don't want to click into any page that has 300 images on it. May I suggest a tool you can use?

    Test the Load Time of a Web Page
    Enter a URL to test the load time of that page, analyze it and find bottlenecks http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/wc8aIiuz/christopherfabbri.wordpress.com/links/2012-california/

    the page seems to load all 300 + images, in under 30 seconds.
    thanks for that link.

  4. I thought you'd be impressed. :)

    timet.
    your help is nice.
    another question..

    do you think the size of the thumbnails may load the full page quicker?

  6. I don't know but 38 seconds is lightning quick.

    yes, well each image is under 1000 width and my thumbnails are under 100 width and I don't put text under the pics, also I thinned out my widget area, so I am thinking these reductions on the page itself , may help the page load faster.
    Yet I do have Cable wireless and it's the fastest , or almost at the highest speed possible. What I would like is if someone could click into that page with 300 + images with dial up or with a DSL and let me know the loading time.

    I obviously could take out images of the gallery. Yet it would be nice if we had a [ gallery ] code that could separate the gallery into parts, or 1-20, 20-40, etc.

    I hope this gallery idea comes into play, it would help us who would like to show lots of pics in one gallery, Thanks
    chris
