Max # of images you should use?

Hey guys,

What do you think the max # of images I should use at a time for my slideshow if they are 694x244? I am worried about load times on slower machines or dial-up. Or is it really that big of a deal.


Read More To Link To Blogs, Other Nodes, Etc

I got the Dynamic Display Block to work and it's very good looking. However, I am just using it to display different featured content of my website. Featured Blogs, Pictures, etc. So I created content with 'news item'. They load perfectly, but I would like the read more button to link to a DIFFERENT node then the respected 'news item' node. How is this possible?

Images with different x/y dimmensions

I do succeed in starting this magic module up in my sandbox, but I'm left with a very annoying issue: i have pictures whose X/Y dimmensions do not always have the same relation
(eg. pic1 = 40px . 60 px, pic 2 = 60px . 60 px, ...).

Until now i see the pictures being displayed in a "fixed" zone, so some pics are "stretched" and do not look as I would ..

any advice?

quick review


Quick review, mainly on aspects where - to me - might be room for improvement.

I think this could be a top module, inc as can display text (titles could be good; as well as nodes)
Initially, though, I'm mainly interested in a random images module.

Like it that it's possible to create several blocks. For me, I have in mind header images block, also images block for left side, and maybe one or more with random titles/teasers.

Trying for images:
