Speed of loading images into webbrowser
I wrote a script that downloads images (a sequence of weather maps) from the internet and displays them using Image.show. It works fine. But the images are not zoomable.
So I wrote an html module which takes a list of these maps (the paths to them) and displays them in the webbrowser module in a slideshow - which is zoomable. Each map is loaded by inserting its path in the form
All that works fine too.
BUT the maps take ages to load in the webbrowser - much slower than they all appear on the console with Image.show. Slower than loading an image from the internet! It's OK once they've been displayed once (ie they're cached I suppose) but it's painful waiting for them as I click through the slideshow.
Can you post the code?
You need several files to use this so I've put them all on gist together with a readme with instructions and a list of all the files.
(I'm new to gist - that's probably not the best way.)
All comments welcome.
I still wonder why it's so slow to display an image that's in the filestore?
i am familiar with <a href="http://www.rasteredge.com/how-to/vb-net-imaging/load-from-file/">vb image loading codes</a> if you want some, i can provide you the easiest and simple one.
