How does Sitefinity work with responsive/adaptive images for a responsive design website?

  • How does Sitefinity work with responsive/adaptive images for a responsive design website?
  • Hi,
    I'm working on a responsive design website and looking for more information about the responsive/adaptive images if Sitefinity has anything out of the box that I can use. There will be a lot of high quality images used for this website and I really want to display the lower quality version when viewed on a mobile device without having to upload to 2 versions of the same image. I'm looking for something that works like Adaptive Images [http://adaptive-images.com/].
    Thank you!

  • I can't help you with this Achara. Just letting Telerik know I'm having the same question. If you have found a solution for this in the mean time, it would be great if you could post it here.
  • Hi Achara,

    I have a question for you, whilst you wait for an answer...

    How are you finding the SF mobile Responsive Design module? We started investigating it for an existing customer who have been using SF since version 3.7 and when we tried out the module, nothing much happened I expected. I then asked Telerik the question about whether or not this module would work if you were using your own custom master pages and they confirmed that it wouldn't. It really only works if you use the built-in layout tools.

    Is this what you found? Or did you perhaps find a workaround? Maybe you do your SF implementations using the built-in layout tools only?

    Regards,
    Jacques

  • Hi Peter,

    Our Responsive design module doesn't offer an adaptive images functionality, but if you could provide us with more details for the requirement  we can log it as a feature requests for our future releases.

  • Any updates on this?

  • Hi,

    Images doesn`t get affected by the responsive design rules as they only affect page converting rows into columns to fit mobile devices.
    If the resposive deign affected images that wouldn`t be a way to preserve the aspect ration of images and when makign them smaller the image will start looking unfit for its size.

    All the best,
