The problem is is that it's loading really slow. I've researched this via .net and feel that I have done everything possible to maximize performance of my code; therefore, I would like to know if there's a way to reformat and or save my bitmap w/out compromizing the quality and cause the size to be smaller? - probably not...but I would like to know from people who work with graphics.
Thank you for your help,
The reason is that that this page has very little color and doesn't have any gradients like shadows. Most of it is large contiguous blocks of color. Aside from the logo up in the left there probably isn't much more that 25 colors, take the logo out and you could even reduce the file size more by reducing the 256 color pallet to what is needed.
gif is only 256 colors so if your image requires more it won't reproduce perfectly.
The .bmp comes in about 3.5 MB. Both at resolution of 1280x960. It's not just a little savings but a lot of savings.
