Retina Display Optimisation

With retina display devices becoming more readily available, with the likes of Apples new iPad, iPhone and Macbook Pro, more and more visitors will be viewing websites through these high pixel density displays.

Retina displays have a much higher pixel density than standard displays. To compensate, these devices double the size of any image to keep the image at the same size as it would appear on a standard display. This means that an image that looks perfectly fine on a standard display, will look soft and pixelated on a retina display.

Retina optimisation allows images to be loaded at the correct size for different display types. Loading larger images than necessary will cause pages to load slower, and keep your visitors waiting. By using retina optimisation techniques, images specifically for the device are created and loaded on the server, allowing images to display pixel perfect on any display, whilst ensuring that no extra loading time is created.

It was crucial for us that not only did we have a simple, aesthetic yet technically efficient website, but also that it was quick and easy to maintain. Working with Chris on this project was a delight – his patience and attention to detail are second to none and ultimately he created exactly the product we were hoping for.

After some frustrating experiences working with web designers in the past, I first contacted Chris with a little trepidation. I needn’t have worried; from the very first meeting I could tell he was the right choice to build my new website. Not only does Chris possess an excellent knowledge of building bespoke websites, he is also a brilliant communicator. He listened to my requirements and built the website that I wanted, all the while making recommendations and suggestions along the way. Throughout the whole process Chris set milestones and stuck to them, while continually communicating with me at every stage. Simply put, I could not recommend a better designer to build a website; Chris is completely professional in every aspect, and a total pleasure to work with.
