The question: At what size do we serve our images? This is the first in a series of two, maybe three posts on answering this question.
Over the last years it has become harder and harder to give an easy answer to this simple question. Smartphones have introduced small screens becoming ubiquitous, and at the same time desktop screens have grown larger and larger in size. And if not larger, they simply double the amount of pixels. So the range of pixel based surfaces to serve your images to is enormous.
Let’s start with ‘the big picture’. In the upcoming post I’ll continue, with smaller to tiny! When it comes to pixels, one of the biggest screens are the retina equipped displays; the Macbook pro, and the iPad; with more than 2000 pixels in width! Remember the days when we used to resize our images to 640px?
