So, they are also partially correct. Compressing the photos a bit better can conservatively cut the size of the page in half without any visual impact - http://www.webpagetest.org/result/120817...ess_images

For users who come back and see the same content again those will be cached but there is a lot of room for improvement just by saving at quality level 75 (85 if you want to be super-conservative with them). In Photoshop it's the equivalent of "save for web" quality level 50-60.

They aren't completely off the hook either. 150KB of compressed javascript is pretty enormous.

They could also make the whole thing load and feel faster if they only loaded the first image in the carousel with the page itself and then loaded the other images after the page itself loaded (and before kicking in the animation).
