New Story map (beta slideshow) slow load times

The new story map with beta slideshow option does not allow the choice to host an image or video, upload only.  Which makes it feel like the load times are very slow to load the entire story map.  I have had this story map released for not even a week and I have already had several complaints about the load times.  Any suggestions other then making the entire story map size smaller or the size of the photos smaller(bigger photos have better resolution)? 

Seems unrewarding to get a story map this far and have a slow story map load time.  Is it a product loading the story map over public WIFI? Desktop vs Laptop? Hosting source?


It seems other story maps I have viewed that are large and complex load much quicker, and I have no videos in it.


Any suggestions would help, thanks, Joe
