A lot of people have slow dial up connections. It is courteous and polite to them to not post so many pictures in one thread.
If you had made five threads (not replys) such as Montana Pictures-1, Montana Pictures-2, Montana Pictures-3, etc, etc; people could open them one at a time and decided after the first one if they wished to view the rest.
I do not know if you compressed them but that is something I just figured out how to do and it will also make life easier on the dialup members.
I know you bogged my computer down and it is state of the art and high speed connection. Of course my internet provider has oversubscribed their bandwidth and can't resist adding more customers.
