    Hello there,

    I'd like to know if images use more bandwidth for each time the page is refreshed / reloaded?

    For example, if I have a logo that's 30kb in size and is on every page of my website will the bandwidth for that particular image be just 30kb regardless of how many pages its viewed on, or 30kb x the amount of times it's viewed (by one person during one visit)?

    Thanks!

    If I'm not mistaken the way it works is if the visitor hasn't emptied their temporary internet folder then as long as the image on the page hasn't been updated or changed they're not going to keep downloading it. So if it's on every page most likely they'll just be using bandwith for that particular image only once.
