tried all, this is by far the better
By , for WP 3.8.1

I'm a developer, I tried all the retina plugins and also bought Retinamatic (sadly, more attention to design than to code there...) but this is by far the best one. Works great, very flexible yet very lean. Tested on WP 3.8.1 with multisite, custom themes, native galleries and custom thumb sizes and works all very well. THANK YOU!

Uh yeah, worked great

Sweet plugin!

I installed it, selected the type of code I wanted to use under Advanced, threw two versions of a logo up (one with the @2x) and BOOM. Normal desktop used logo.png and MacbookPro used logo@2x.png instantly.

Nice work and thank you!!!

Could not figure out why some of my images were missing in Retina-ready themes. Duh.

This plugin fixes that. Thanks.

An essential plugin!
Very easy to use, I contacted Jordy Meow for some questions and he's really nice.
Plugin work even if you add @2x pictures yourself.

Thanks a lot Mr Meow!

Merci beaucoup!

This plugin is absolutely brilliant. I was going to use Photon, which was way too heavy for my site and slowed things right down. Your plugin is easy to use and has no slow load times.

Thank you!

Excellent and easy-to-use plugin

Does exactly what it says! As long as you upload large images, and tell wordpress to shrink them for posts, it can use that oversized file to build retina images for all your site images.

A choice of methods to deliver them to the client let you work around peculiar hosting solutions, and it works just fine.

A must-have plug-in!

Great Plugin!

Thanks for your work! It's much appreciated!

Works like charm and is great to work with.

I use it in combination with http://mobiledetect.net/ to pass the right thumbnail size for mobile devices, tablets, desktops....

A donation will come in the next week, my fellow! ;)

Awesome plugin
By , for WP 3.5.2

WP Retina 2x is a wonderful plugin.
It will save you a lot of time, so you can use it to focus more on creating quality content.

If you use Google Page Speed Service alongside with WP Retina 2x plugin, please note that you will need to go to the Page Speed settings > Configure Rewriters > Optimize Images, and uncheck "Resize on the server".
If you forget to do that, then the plugin can not work properly for you.

I've start to implement the plugin on my website http://www.ilovemega.com/blog/
I'll need some times to change all my images to the correct Retina size, but thanks to this plugin the process is way faster.

With the rise of the retina display, the future looks bright for this plugin. Moreover the creator offers an appreciated support service.

Thumbs up WP Retina 2x !

Essential plugin for responsive websites
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin works brilliantly. Easy set-up, great controls on each image, possibility to automatically generate x2 images on upload or on replaceā€¦

Plus it works effortlessly with BJ Lazy Load plugin, so good for your site's speed :)

Thanks Jordy!
