what's your settings for image uploads?
They are pretty liberal! Up to 100 per post (I permit image, pdf, mp4 and mp3), and with dimensions up to 4K.
the amount of images is not the problem its the size of them that is!

No, it's the encryption that's killing me. They are all roughly the same size; some load, some don't. I'm bringing the VM to its knees when I encrypt. Without encryption, they all load - it just takes its good ole time.

That's why I think a lazy load extension is a nifty idea. Paint the boxes in low rez, and fill in the details as time goes on.

You might want to use a lazy loading script, which should help by loading on image at a time and only when you need it. I made an extension for my forums precisely for this, and also helps to people with low speed internet.
Ooh! I'm likin' this idea. Do you have a link to your extension?
Well, I found this! I'll give it a try.

The one I made it's not free because, it lazy-loads more than just images, does server-side compression and allows a more granular configuration.

I think for your issue, the one you linked from the CDB, would be more than enough for you.
