    I've been told that the URL above that it loads slow especially on a dialup connection.. Someone told me to try JPEG instead of GIFs. I don't have a dial up connection so I don't know how slow it actually loads.

    Below is a link to the same site except the homepage uses JPEG instead of GIFS.

    http://fmm.lindseymarshall.net

    Will someone with a dialup connection tell me which page loads faster?

    Or give me a suggestion on how to make my pages load faster.

    Thanks,

    By simply looking at the size of the graphics for each page, you can tell that your jpeg version of the site is smaller. I visited both sites and used IE's "Save as Webpage" feature, and the jpeg's images were 56kb, while the gif version of your site was 84kb in size.
