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!

How many images are we talking?January 2, 2013 at 2:25 pm #119648
About 10-15 imagesJanuary 2, 2013 at 4:00 pm #119651
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.January 2, 2013 at 4:04 pm #119652
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.January 2, 2013 at 5:25 pm #119665
Ok, good to know. Thanks!
