Adaptive-Images for WordPress: make sure that image files are never bigger than what a device can use.


Resolutions will make sure that image files are never bigger than what a device can use, so the 4000 x 4000 photos that your client or content team post won’t melt any smartphones.

It is a one-click WordPress implementation of Matt Wilcox’s Adaptive-Images plugin. See for more info.


  • Up and running in seconds.
  • Protects your website from misuse by content creators, clients, etc.
  • Makes images on your site load faster.
  • Saves bandwidth for everyone.

How It Works

When a device lands on a resolutions-enabled site, JavaScript creates a cookie that stores the device’s resolution. Then, .htaccess redirects image requests to adaptive-images.php, which reads the cookie and creates/caches appropriately-sized versions of images before sending them to the viewer.


  1. Install and activate the plugin from your WordPress dashboard.
  2. Resolutions is now watching all of the image files in your uploads directory.
