Load Photoshop Slices quicker?? PLEASE HELP!!

Hi, I've created a website through slicing in Adobe Photoshop CS(ImageReady) and the page loads all the images in the table slowly. Is there anyway to load all content at once on each page? I realise there is no way to load the page quicker as it is made of images, but is there way of making this process smoother?

Please, Please help!

I don't think this is really an AW thing ... but, before the page generates you an issue a preload function to load all the images pieces.

The page itself will not load/generate quicker. But it might give the illusion that it is.

I use Dreamweaver for html development. Below is a function that does the image preloading (it is a Dreamweaver-provided function, but it should work with anything):

function MM_preloadImages() { //v3.0
  
var d=document; if(d.images){ if(!d.MM_pd.MM_p=new Array();
    var 
i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0i<a.lengthi++)
    if (
a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Imaged.MM_p[j++].src=a[i];}}
And in the BODY tab, it would look something like this:

<body onLoad="preloader();MM_preloadImages('images/survey/survey-on.gif');" I'd have to look at one of my other examples to see how to list a bunch of images to preload - but I know it can be done.

If you need any help, let me know.
