    Hey guys,

    is there an obvious advantage in using CSS sprites when the combined images are a lot larger than the single image files?

    I heard that the aim is to reduce HTTP requests, but is this reason enough to compromise the image loading time?

    I’m looking forward hearing your take on this one!

    Cheers,
    Jakob

    How many images are we talking?

    #119648

    About 10-15 images

    It definitely depends on how big the image is. If it’s turning itself into a 1mb sprite then you’ve gone too far, imo.

    Yeah, as @thedoc said – if it’s a massive image file you need to look at what you’re doing to see if there’s an alternative.
