Pre-loading of thumb nail images

  1. Hi,

    If want to have a series of photos in thumb nails - I normally upload the large photo , then i will insert into post at a thumbnail size of my choice - this then automatically is linked to the large original size. My question is: when i choice the size of the thumb nail does word press create a new image in the system or does it actually load the original size (just re-sizes it on screen) ?

    What im trying to get at is, that will it take so long to load my page if i have a lot of images even though they are inserted at a smaller size ? or will it take long even though i have inserted a thumbnail size because its actually going to load the full size image?

    did that make sense?

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is aswjmedia.com.au.

    I don't know the answer to your question and I hope that another Volunteer can answer it. However, I visited your blog and see that your images are linked to download files so perhaps that's a factor.

    Download & Listen
    (right click and select “save target as” or “save link as”)

    There are many factors that negatively affect page loading times. As page loading time is now a Google ranking factor I expect to see some bloggers scrambling to declutter their sidebars ASAP.
