WordPress and Image Resolution

Thanks to all who came to the Edinburgh WordPress Meetup Group last Wednesday (17 September) where I gave a brief presentation on using WordPress to deal with image resolution issues.

In brief my suggestion was to use the Picturefill.WP plugin to detect screen size and resolution and serve the most appropriate image. Picturefill.WP uses the Picturefill.js library, a polyfill for inserting the emergent HTML <picture> tag.

The presentation - available on SpeakerDeck - is not particularly useful if you weren’t at the meeting, but it does include a closing slide that rounds up the various resources I referred to during my talk.

Thanks again to Iain (Taylor) of Ezone Interactive for organising the meetup. A very pleasant and growing group of people.
