Time to rethink the dpi for your main web and mobile site images
You apple users already get this…others need some prompting!
Just bumped across a review on the new iPads and two sentences caught my eye. The reviewer mentioned surfing to Zillow, the site that lists houses for sale. He commented on how the pictures looked all pixelated.
That’s important, and it’s also a sesimic change in the digital world of our websites and images on the mobile devices viewed by our clients. In ‘the good old days,’ the way to keep your web pages loading fast, and not bust through your storage and bandwidth limits of your hosting provider, the best bet was to ‘downsize’ the images to be 100dpi (dots per inch) down to no less than 72dpi.
