On Our Radar: Responsive Images Are Trolling Us AllBy Jasmine Elias
It’s been a week of putting on our best old school berets, magnifying glasses, optional fashionable pipe, and detective vest. Responsive images are difficult to comprehend. 0 is is false and 1 is true, right? 1?
On Our Radar
We begin with DaMarkov’s frustration towards this whole ‘responsive web design’ thing that’s been going around. Designing and working in the field since 1996, DaMarkov’s seen things and it makes him angry. Big bight colours and large CTA’s that look great on mobile don’t translate well to Desktops. So have we taken this too far, and are Desktops paying the price?
We probably have because Forums user Qim isn’t sure why images are adopting different sizes. Detective Technobear leaps in to detect what’s up with the CSS code, and it all seems to go well for a little while, but it comes down to a case of what we’re seeing in code isn’t translating. Very frustrating for qim, so help a fellow developer out if you’re experienced in CSS and value your sanity.
Transmitter comes in with an age-old question on responsive design: what do you do with responsive images and no width? And in this age of mobile design, can we do something about speed as well? Responsive design has trolled us well this week.
