Responsive design and image sizes


Recommended Posts

Q. What technique is the most efficient in terms of image load times and performance...? Scenario 1. Is it to load a different size image by using a media query, as below: /* Smartphone */@media screen and (max-width: 320px) { .img-page-1-img { background: url('../images/img-page-1-img-117.jpg') no-repeat; width: 117px; height: 77px; }}/* Desktop */@media only screen and (min-width: 769px) { .img-page-1-img { background: url('../images/img-page-1-img-234.jpg') no-repeat; width: 234px; height: 154px; }} OR... Scenario 2. Load one single large image and use CSS to "stretch" and resize by setting the max-width property..? img { max-width: 100%;} Thanks....
