|For the last week or so, and on occasions, I'm experiencing slow image downloads. This happens either when landing on an image page, clicking for a preview, or when viewing an image at full resolution. For example a 12 MB image may take 24 seconds to download, and this from a fairly fast internet connection. Things are worse from my far slower home ISP. And unfortunately I have noticed that people are starting to use the PNG image format (a bad choice for images without annotations (in my opinion)) which usually results in larger file sizes and lacks the progressive download feature of the JPEG format.|

nothing changed on AstroBin with regards to the storage of images. There might be some clogging in the pipe between your ISP and the hosting server? For me both from home and from work they are super fast.

I'll investigate this a little bit further and I'll let you know!
