First I'm a novice. I have a Micron 500mz 128mb computer. I have my web site
about 80% complete. This web site will have about 50 pages when I am done. We are a family wholesale Silk Flower Business, so we have hundreds of floral images. Now, my question, when I am working on one of my pages and want to save the page, I press >save_as<, before I can start to work again it takes about 2min. for the save operation to complete. I have at least 12gb in Drive D: this is the drive I am using. My computer is set to automaticly defrag on sunday morn.What can I do?     jim boyle

Hey jbosylkflo,

Just a couple quick questions:

- What are you creating this page in? (Frontpage, Flash, HTML Editor)

- What kind of files are the images? (Gifs, Jpegs, BMP)

- How big are these images, on average?

Thanks,

Telf

hey jim,

Sorry, I should have been more clear.  I was wondering about the actual size of the file that each image is stored in, not the size displayed on the screen.  The thumbnails are likely small, but the full size images could be quite large in terms of file space, depending on the format they are saved as (gif,jpeg,bmp).  

Now, when you say that the page is going to consist of 50 pages, what exactly do you mean?  Are you creating each of these pages independantly or does Frontpage create one large "project" that contains all of them?  If it is saving it as one project then you would be saving all of the pages you have created every time you save.  Depending on the size of those pages this could take some time.

I was also wondering why you need 50 pages in this site?

Telf, my web site is; >boylesilkfloralsupply< it is 80% complete.
the size of each flower varies a ref is
rose 275gif= 16kb same flower= 275gifsm
=9kb. For every flower there is gif and gifsm, also there is approx 550 items in my image file all my flowers plus other items I know nothing about. I'm sure there is a lot of redundancy
I scan the flower into adobe photo deluxe and clean the flower up some then I send it to >disk< >export< to
>gif format< and then save it to type of file >compuserve gif (*.gif) now where where the flowers with jpeg came from I don't know.
Now the reason I say (50) pages is as follows; I get about (9) flowers to a page, and have (7) types of flowers and approx (3) pages per type,I have (5) importers.
When I set up my web site with front page 2000 it appears to be one project.
As a novice I know I made a lot of mistakes, help     jim boyle

I believe you are editing the remote site. this makes it so not only does frontpage have to save the site, but also upload it and any images associated with it.  Make sure you are editing your local copy, then Publish the site to the remote machine when your completed all the changes.

Hatemachine, I think my problem is redundacy, I have so many files with the same files, I'm sure I must have at least (4) or more copies of each flower
and I must have at least 300 flowers. My problem I don't know which flower to eliminate with out eliminating the flowers in my web site. I have flowers in the gif ( 1-gif and 1-gifsmall), jpeg(1-jepg and 1- jepg smal), htm., file folder, and ppd., I know this is a lot but which one do I eliminate. i am a novive.

Open your web pages, after they're published, and right click on the images, and view the properties to see which iimages are being shown, then delete the ones that are not used.
