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.

When we started looking for a web developer to build the face of our new venture, we obviously started the search at home; South Africa. Many mails later, we were shocked that most of the local developers quoted us almost 5000GBP for the job, they didn't seem to understand what we wanted and they sure didn't seem confident that they could deliver it. A friend referred me to Chris and after a few short mails we had a surprisingly affordable quotation on the job and he had a solution for every problem we discussed with him. It is almost a year later and we haven't had a single problem with the site or Chris's service. He maintains our site to keep it lightning fast and up to date with the latest technology. He is exceptionally professional and always replies promptly when there's an issue. Most importantly, the website is barely a year old and we're almost at the top of google search results for our target market.

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.
