What Are Responsive Web Images? Hi, welcome to this Pluralsight course on responsive web images. My name is Robert Boedigheimer. What we're going to look at in this course is with the popularity of responsive web design we want to focus on one of the most problematic areas which is efficiently serving the right images for the right device. In this first module we'll look at exactly what are responsive web images.
Image Types In this module, we're going to focus on image types. It's very important to make sure that we understand the capabilities of each image type, and when it's appropriate to use it and when it's not appropriate to use it. So as everything else in computers there are a lot of trade-offs and decisions to be made but this if often where a lot of mistakes are made where people are simply choosing an inappropriate image type for their desired outcome.
Responsive Image Use Cases In this module we're going to focus on responsive image use cases so there's just a few major use cases that are very common for responsive web designs and how they use images, so we're going to focus on those major use cases here.
Responsive Image Techniques In this module, we're going to focus on the responsive image techniques. These will be the various approaches we're going to take to solve the use cases that apply for our particular scenarios.
Maximizing Performance In this module, we're going to focus on Maximizing your performance. We talked previously about how responsive web images is mostly a performance issue. We've talked about choosing the right image types and serving the right raster images to support the design that we have for our responsive web design. We're going to focus on additional techniques here that we should be using to maximize performance with regard to images.
