Tour goes slow when thumbnails & control bar are shown

by LBernos » Wed Mar 08, 2017 8:50 am


My tour is going smooth (most of it) if the control and thumbnails bar are hidden. But if you show it, the whole tour lags/ slows down and almost unusable.

How can I fix it?

Well, it could have something to do with the fact that your thumbnail images are gigantic (roughly 3820x2300 each) which are then resized to be 120x70 images!

On faster connections it's not an issue but on slow connections or mobile devices you're asking for a lot of bandwidth and resources (for mobiles) to load huge images that will then be resized.

As a general "rule", if you're going to resize images in a tour, or even on any web page, use dimensions closer to the actual size you want it, if not the actual size without having to resize them.
