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.

Chris Davies is a top notch pro at what he does, and my experience with him has been very positive from the start. After hearing high recommendations from my peers, I approached him to build a website for my photography business. Chris did his research, looked and got an idea about my work before answering. He then scheduled the project exactly, giving me a good idea of what to expect and when to expect it. He was very transparent and clear, and this gave me the feeling that I'm doing the right thing, from the get go. As for results, I'm very happy. Chris did his best to meet the vast majority of my demands, which were neither few nor easy. He gave his experienced opinion on matters on which I was undecided, and did so quickly and with proper explanations. In this Chris made my decisions much easier, and I'm also very much at peace with the hard choices I needed to make. Chris never complained when I insisted on fine-tuning of more critical parts of the site, and even though it required a great deal of work, he understood that some things need lots of work to be perfect. Chris is readily available to answer questions, solve problems and does his best to help when you really need it. Whenever I contacted him with a request, question or the rare fix, he answered promptly, professionally and helpfully. When he's out of office, he lets you know. All this resulted in very strong confidence he installed in me - one of the traits that makes him so good to work with. Chris is also great with all the rest - SEO, additions and changes - you will never be frustrated, you will always have an ear for your needs which will be met with the utmost skill and expertise. I can strongly recommend Chris as a top web designer. I'm extremely happy with the results, it was well worth the investment, and I feel the website he has built for me will serve me well for years to come.

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.
