if(isset($_SESSION['username']))      /*** user is loged in ***/
    $user = $_SESSION['username'];    //get name of who is loged in

    $count = 0;
    $Q = "SELECT (SELECT image_short_name FROM user WHERE username = '$user') as `image_short_name`"
    ." FROM `image`"
    ." ORDER BY RAND()"
    ." LIMIT 30";
    $R = mysql_query($Q);

Do you really need to use a nested SQL query? A join will be quicker.
Also, your images may be enormous, even though your display size is small. If each image is 1Mb+ in size, then 30 images will kill you. Your host will probably try to contact you as well! Profile images need to be VERY small. Perhaps using an ajax scroller or paginator can help so that you only display, say 10 at a time?

If your members are uploading their own photos, either have a filesize limit (say 50kB)
My DW Avatar: 5.7K (GIF), 15K (JPEG), 13K PNG32 (less for PNG16, PNG8) for a 100x100px image.

You may get better results from limiting filetype too. For oversize (pixels or memory), you can decide whether to reject the image or convert it (e.g. GD library).

Just a few thoughts.
