Why Does My Page Load Slow, Images Jump Around The Screen, Etc.?

Summary:
Many things can affect how your site looks visually as it is loading.  The more streamlined your site is, the faster it will load.

Here are some things to consider when troubleshooting a page that loads slowly or one that has images that jump around the screen during loading:

1: Do you have a large image(s)?  Consider splitting it into 3 or 4 smaller files and placing them side by side to represent 1 combined image.  This is a standard approach in Web development. 4 smaller files will load faster than 1 big one and as a result you minimize the load time of the page.

2. What is the size of the image(s)?.  Consider using an image management tool to compress the image(s) so that you’re not dealing with large images to begin with.
