    How fast is your internet connection? Is this a recent issue, or has it always happened? Do you have the latest version of Safari?

    Hmm, do the images load at the same speed in another web browser such as FireFox? And have you tried restarting the computer? If neither of those works, try creating a new account and seeing if the images load slowly on the new account.

    Well... from the sheer number of things that are possibly affected, you might not go wrong with another restart to reset the PRAM and then repair permissions...
