Wow. I would set keepalive to maybe 5 or 10, not 75.
If you are serving that much traffic, I might even try turning
keepalives off altogether.

But if you already modified those values, and didn't see a change,
then I don't know.
You may try setting expires headers for your images, if they don't
change very often (or at all).
