I have around 100 images on a top level category page of mine. The the size and quality of the images is necessary to show the widgets in enough detail. There are text links along with the image links to product pages.
I realize the page size is pretty large and I want to reduce it as much as I can.
What/How are my options to reduce image the size of my images?
What else could I do to further reduce the size of the page? Should I get rid of the images all together and just have a text navigation list? (there is currently a text link next to the image links) This may not be an option for me.

Is there not a way to break that 100 images into categories? Say, 20-30 each? Your top page would then have 10-12 images leading to secondary pages. Many folks are running cable/dsl and that would load quickly.
