I have a theory that I'd like someone to affirm or refute. With sites like Flickr now on the scene wouldn't another method of optimizing the speed with which a site can be downloaded be to upload your pictures first to one of those sites and then just include the link to it in the proper place in your page as the source?

People would still have to download the picture from flickr to be able to see it so IMO I still think it would take just as long for a user.

The Flickr Community Guidelines (http://www.flickr.com/guidelines.gne) does not allow the service to be used for hosting web graphics and your account could be terminated if you do.

THanks. I missed that.
