The way your store works just now, i.e. the default way, is each thumbnail is actually the large size image you uploaded for each product. Every time one of your images is displaying the store downloads your large image (one image I looked at was 65k!). What you need is an auto thumbnail generator to create small versions of your images on-the-fly. A great one is the Image Resample contribution, but make sure you have the GD library installed on your server to use this.. Use phpinfo() to check:


Just write this in a blank file (say test.php):


<?php phpinfo() ?>


and upload to your server. Go to this page and look for gd support to be enabled. I think this contrib runs from gd 2.0 and above.


Also, remember to set your preferred image sizes under admin.


Hope this helps.
