I’ve started trialling different HTML and technologies for the “simple” responsive images (i.e. not art-directed per breakpoint) used in blog articles on this site. I’m continuing to lean on Cloudinary as my free image host, CDN and format-conversion service. But at the HTML level I’ve moved from a complicated
<img srcset> based approach which included many resized versions of the same image. I now use a simpler
<source> based pattern that keeps the number of images and breakpoints low, leaning instead into the performance gains offered by the newer image formats
Cloudinary is a very handy tool for image and video upload, storage, optimisation and CDN.
