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.

From the moment I started into conversation with Chris about building my website I knew I had found the right man. Nothing is too much trouble and any adjustments or help I’ve needed over the last few years have been handled very promptly. I cannot imagine using anyone else for web design and my site management, I couldn’t be happier with Chris’s attitude and professionalism.

I can't recommend Chris highly enough. He is an absolute pleasure to work with and extremely skilled at what he does. As a photographer, it was also very reassuring to realise that Chris is every bit as much a perfectionist as I am - he likes to get things right! I'm absolutely delighted with the website he's built for me. It is everything I'd hoped it would be, and more. I'm confident it's going to make a real difference to my business and feedback so far has been extremely positive.
