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.

Christopher was quick to understand and interpret my vision. He worked swiftly and professionally to build my pages and to deliver a website that precisely meets my needs, keeping me informed at all times and cheerfully accepting change requests. His responsive and flexible ongoing support maintains the integrity of my site and keeps me positioned for whatever the future holds. Delightful to work with.

Chris delivered my website on schedule and made it an enjoyable experience. He listened to all the objectives and designed a website which looks amazing and ticks all the boxes (and more!) for functionality. Working at a distance with someone I had never met was a new experience but this just goes to prove that in today's wired world this can actually be an advantage. I am delighted with the website which Chris built for my business.
