I have the NextGen Gallery installed on my blog to handle about 10 images for each travel related story my wife writes. The site performance is too slow, especially when a user tries to toggle through my image gallery. Each time I toggle to the next image the following occurs in about 1 second...
-in place image disappears
-Either the image narrative pops up in the image space or
-The story narrative which follows the image pops up into the open space
-The new image snaps in, moving the narrative back down
This is seen by the user as a quick flash on the screen. I've checked out my share server provider who's told me the server is working well. He suggested I might want to try another image slider.
I'm trying to find a root cause and solution without moving out of the NextGen gallery if possible. Any ideas on how to find the root cause of the problem and perhaps a solution?
