What Are Adaptive Images?

When optimizing and serving your images, we’ll also resize it properly for the browser and screen used by each and every visitor for extra speed and savings!

In the Live Compression Mode adaptive images can automatically serve the properly sized and transformed image to the visitors device. This helps improve speed and image quality, depending on the user's device.

For example, if you're viewing on a 27in 5K iMac in chrome, a retina (2x) webp image would be served at lightning fast speeds across our CDN. If on a Samsung Galaxy S10, an image will be scaled properly for the specific screen - saving unneeded file size without impacting perceived quality!

In the Local Compression Mode compatibility for adaptive images may depend on your theme and builder settings.

This typically fixes the “Serve Scaled Images” criteria and helps contribute to lightning fast load-times.
