Support » Plugin: ShortPixel Adaptive Images » Compatibility with WP Retina 2X Plugin

  • Resolved Steven



    It doesn’t seem that SPAI works alongside with WP Retina 2X, does it?

    In this case, would you know a way to serve @2x images for retina displays while using SPAI?

    Thanks a lot,

    Hi Steven!

    SPAI serves retina images as long as it finds a big enough version of your image. For example, if your image is 300px wide and you are using a retina display, SPAI will serve the 600px version of it.

    Hi Gerard,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Then you mean I don’t need to use WP Retina 2x with SPAI?

    Going back to my issue, when inspecting the image on a Retina display, shouldn’t it finish with the @2x extension if the retina image was well served? Because that’s the case when I deactivate SPAI and only let WP Retina 2X working…

    Also, when looking at the dimensions info, it says the image is resized to the current width of the image, not 2 times its width. So I’m not sure it’s working…

    Thanks for your insight

    Hi Steven,

    Exactly, you don’t need to use WP Retina 2x with SPAI.

    And no, the image will not finish with the @2x extension. It is way simpler: say you got a 600px image. Now say you are placing it on a 300px placeholder. For normal displays, SPAI will serve a 300px image, but for Retina displays, it will serve the 600px one.

    If you want we can check your site to see if it’s working properly. If you don’t want to write here your site URL, you can send us an email here and we will take a look at it. Please make sure to mention this conversation 🙂

    Thank you,
