Why aren't my photos being blacked out?

  1. When i click on my photos instead of showing them in the theme i've chosen they are blacked out and on top of one another so you can't see them - i've tried changing the theme but this doesn't work either.
    When i'm previewing thems they work fine but once i activate it they do this fade out black thing???

  2. You have uploaded Huge photos and are not waiting for them to come up. They load very, very slowly.

    If you optimize your photos prior to uploading so they are only 72 dpi and no more than 700 px across, I think your problems will clear up.

  3. Why aren't they? Or why are they?

    The thread title confused me earlier this morning, but I just thought it was a severe caffeine shortage in my system

    But I see Raincaster looked into it and discovered one of my all time pet peeves -- too big pictures. I keep trying to tell people about it. I even had a website up on it for a while. But nobody listens.

    For grins and giggles, I'll say it one more time. No image uploaded to a website should be larger than 100Kb.

    Prior to uploading any image into your blog, regardless if it’s a header image, a featured image, an image in a post or page, in a Post format (Gallery or Image), an image for sidebar display in an image widget or a text widget, you can optimize and re-size it in either a desktop image editing software or online image editing software to fit the space you intend to use it in. By undertaking proper image preparation first you will get the best image quality, won't be wasting your media storage space, and won't be wasting you time troubleshooting.
