Loading times of art websites
I was not sure what category to place this post under. My son and sister have art websites and yesterday I talked to another young artist who had a website. All of them have websites which take too long to load. One has a front page which irritates me. I don't want to wait forever for a front page that tells me to click on anything. Nor do I want to hang around waiting for pictures to load. As we all know, if this happens, I lose interest and go elsewhere. Does anyone on here have SEO advice or general advice for artists websites? The problem is, if you sell pictures, you need a lot of visual stuff, but to make everything uniform can destroy the effect of the picture. It isn't always helpful to resize all the work to a standard size. People who make websites are not usually also artists. My sister paid someone who made a website but did not understand her needs and she ended up doing most of it herself. I probably should ask the question on a photography site as well but it is all relevant in the end. What I am thinking of doing is creating an email for all three with the relevant advice for website creation. It is easier to say some things third hand, if you get my drift. Yesterday the pictures were lovely but waiting for them to load made me feel like I was watching paint dry.
