is there any way you can have those img tags (the ones with the height and 
width) changed to reference a php script?  you could write a script that 
reads in the image they're requesting, and takes a height and width as 
inputs, then uses php commands like imagecopyresampled() or 
imagecopyresized() to dynamically output a resized image?  maybe this would 
be too much load on your server, but it sure would cut down on the download 
time, and would almost *positively* give you better image quality.

might look something like this
src=""; >

with a script something to the effect of thumbnail.php: (assuming the file 
is a jpeg)

imagecopyresized($smallimage,$bigimage, etc....);
