My portfolio currently shows up in the current version's chrome, firefox and internet explorer 9.
Here is my website:
Any advise on this would be great! and if anyone here has IE 8 and can test my site that would be helpful too.

What I sent to him...
In Internet exploerer 8 my Grid Portfolio cant seem to load the images, it loads for awhile and then the text from the images just display and nothing else, I am on a 8 year old computer running windows vista. so it is slow loading things sometimes.
In the later version of chrome the portfolio shows although it is hard to to scroll to bottom,(just my slow computer I guess)
Was just wondering I maybe my portfolio has too many images and If I should break up the portfolio into smaller chunks on seperate pages or is there anything else thats affecting the performance of the grid portfolio in Internet Explorer.
Thanks for time in advance.

Everything is working fine. Your problem is that you are using absolutely gigantic images which are taking forever to load. For example
D3_MillerA_ConnectCertificateEnvelope_Final-copy2.jpg :::: 2425 × 1825
The very max you need in this case is about 800px and that even is pushing it on the larger side for this type of thing.
You need to use online or use photoshop to compress them.
I reduced about 20 of the 40 images and broke up the portfolio onto 3 different pages and now they load faster cause the images are a bit smaller now, but still issues with IE8, but i will check here from time to time if anyone else has any suggestions.

A collegue of mine has checked in IE and they say the portfolio is displaying ok. Do you have compatibility mode or anything like that active which could be interfering? We'll leave this thread open for you in case anyone else has any suggestions which could help you.

Thanks for checking
It's showing up....but (on my 8 year old laptop) when it loads in IE8 the print work portfolio struggles to load, while the digital content portfolio seems to load faster with everything...I am still going to decrease the size of the images of the Print work portfolio further to see if there will be a better loading experience.
