Adaptive Images

Is a solution to automatically create, cache, and deliver device-appropriate versions of your website’s content images. It does not require you to change your mark-up. It is intended for use with Responsive Designs and to be combined with Fluid Image techniques.

Benefits

  • Ensures you and your visitors are not wasting bandwidth delivering images at a higher resolution than the vistor needs.
  • Will work on your existing site, as it requires no changes to your mark-up.
  • Is device agnostic (it works by detecting the size of the visitors screen)
  • Is CMS agnostic (it manages its own image re-sizing, and will work on any CMS or even on flat HTML pages)
  • Is entirely automatic. Once added to your site, you need do no further work.
  • Highly configurable
    • Set the resolutions you want to become adaptive (usually the same as the ones in your CSS @media queries)
    • Decide whether you want to go Mobile First or Desktop First if JavaScript is unavailable
    • Choose where you want the cached files to be stored
    • Configure directories to ignore (protect certain directories so AI is not applied to images within them)
