Adaptive Images Made Easy

by Jonathan Longnecker

Adaptive Images →

As we’re working on a new version of the ol’ FortySeven Media site, we’re looking at putting together one of those fancy adaptive/responsive layouts. The one thing that has always seemed difficult was images. Even if you can scale an image down, you’re still probably loading the full size image on mobile which defeats the whole purpose.

This looks like a nice, easy solution.

  2. Oh, this is clever! I’ve spent ages looking at ways to do exactly this… Getting images to play the adaptive game can be a nightmare, so thanks a lot!
