Links - Back, Up, Forward - Macromedia Dreamweaver

I am new using Dreamweaver - I am a graphic designer working on a site to show examples of my work. I have a page of logo thumbnails with are linked to the larger versions. Each time I load the page with the larger version and then come back to the thumbnails page, all the thumbnails are reloaded which slows everything down. Is there a way to overcome this by possibly linking the enlargement pages together that give the choice on each page to go BACK - UP - FORWARD? Thanks for any suggestions. Gary Allred...

    Gary:

    First off, if a file is already in the local browser's cache, it will not be
    re-fetched from the server. I guess that what you are seeing is the time
    required to RENDER the page, and not any re-fetch time. This suggests that
    your page has alot of thumbnail images on it and is heavier than desirable
    as a result. Constraining the number of images on a page, or further
    optimizing each image would be a good way to deal with this issue.

    Have you considered showing the larger images in pop-up windows rather than
    as a link to a new page?

    In the link e.g. to thumb1nail page you can put:

    javascript:history.go(-1)

    which is the same as hitting back button in browser


    Hope this helps
