Responsive web design, solutions for responsive images /, [written by] Anders Andersen ... [et al.] - pdf

With the limitations that the img tag brings along, images have long been a major obstacle when wanting to create truly responsible, fast, responsive websites. Luckily, the upcoming picture element and srcset/sizes are about to finally change this. However, even in the meantime, while browser vendors are still busy implementing the new specification, you can already start to incorporate truly responsive images into your website. There are a number of smart solutions to close up the existing gaps: polyfills, fallbacks for legacy browsers, and clever approaches that were created on the fly due to missing alternatives. This book will help you review and understand the different techniques. It features practical advice on every implementation, as well as tips on tackling the art direction and resolution-switching use cases that a growing device landscape has brought along --, Edited summary from book
