What setting for image storage are you using? In the Configuration 
options, the "Store images in data file" option is certainly much slower 
than the other two options. Tellico essentially has to unzip and write 
out all the images every time you open it.

If you store the images either in the common directory 
(~/.kde/share/apps/tellico/data/) or in a directory specific to the data 
file (with a -data extensionn), showing the images in a column will be 
much faster, I expect.
