The reason I set it up that way in the header is when you log out you're not allowed to see galleries- the thumbnail mode is restricted to registered members, so new people visiting or pre-login you just get a broken image.
I'll look at both when I get a chance... got to be painful on a cell or dialup this way.
Yes probably. Apart from them being full sized you have to realise that your browser, phone, or ISP will cache a lot of stuff you view- which means not only was the old single picture small but it was probably on your computer already... the polar opposite of that is having (currently) nearly 500 rotating images which limits the regularity with which the same ones come up. Everytime a new image comes up you download the whole thing grinding everything down. Not noticible on a piping cable connection, but hard to work around since I'm relying on other people's architecture and we have nearly 5000 images (4998 currently...) in the pool.
Pax, I guess there's a big gap between IT and the id.....

2006 Toyota Prius because we like clean air
2002 Honda Odyssey - can haul lots of stuff
