Retina @2x

Description

This plugin adds a simple Javascript to your WordPress website that will check for each image if there is a retina version available. This will make sure that your images (logo’s, buttons, images with text) look sharp on Apple devices with retina displays.

When you have for example a logo of 200 by 200 pixels called “Logo.png”, you will need to upload a second image of 400 by 400 pixels called “Logo@2x.png” in the exact same directory.

Installation

  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Done!

No, we might add this later.

What’s the difference between Retina @2x and other Retina plugins?

Other plugins may automatically generate the retina version of your image(s). This plugin is much more simple and lightweight and only looks for retina images. If you don’t upload a “@2x” version, the original image will be shown and therefore not look sharp on mobile devices.
