Thats what I mean though, the great discontent haven’t really used a placeholder, they have used the actual image instead of a placeholder.

By placeholder I mean like a tiny file (1kb) or something. Then load in the relevant image via lazy load. Problem with this is there is no actual image in the img tag, which can be a problem. But if you do include the low-res image in the image tag, then you allow double downloads.

– Mobile wouldn’t be a problem anyway as that will download the lower sized image anyway. Only bigger screens will download this, plus the bigger size.
