Home Forums Design Downsample (vs) 2X for retina images? Reply To: Downsample (vs) 2X for retina images?


Downsampling isn’t ideal, because it means users on a non-high DPI screen have to download an image twice the size they’ll view it at.

That means it’s slower for them and essentially you’re punishing them for not having a non-high DPI display… Don’t do that.
