Good plugin, great response to developer feedback
By ,

This plugin seemed like the best bet for handling retina images on a website I'm doing, however it didn't play well with my "bedrock" setup. The developer behind the plugin was quick to address this and created a fix in a matter of weeks, which honestly is really hard to find on any plugin like this.

What I love most about this plugin though, is that it only updates the code for images that have a retina ready version. If you don't have all your assets in retina quality: no worries, the plugin will show them anyway.

best retina images plugin out there.

Perfect mix of Great Developer and really Helpful Plugin

If you are like me, and just want to have the best and necessary Plugins on your website, this is one of them.

Well coded, works great, do what it's supposed to do, and saves a lot of time. Gives you 4 options to accomplish the Retina dirty work, so you have the perfect option to your needs.

The Pro version it's just 30USD for Life, really fair, so there's no reason to not support it. But you will have 99% of the functionality with the free version.

The best, is how amazing the Developer is active and answer every question, even every review. This gives me confidence on the Plugin and it's future.

It's a matter of time until WordPress is Retina Ready, but until now, this will be the first Plugin I install on my websites.

Thank you!

Makes integrating beautifully and automatically retina sized images a lot easier and faster than it would be without this plugin!

Resource hog

It certainly does what is says on a tin, and does it very well. My site looks terrific, thanks Jordy!

Now, why not 5 stars?… I run 25 plugins on my website, some of them are really heavy. But according to P3 Profiler, the Retina2x accounts to 27% of the site's load time, leaving an ultra high-res Revolution Slider (4%) and even Gravity Forms (16%) way behind.

Fortunately, I use a fast dedicated server, so TTFB and overall page speed is good, but if you're on a shared hosting, you might experience some Retina-related slowness (ask your ophthalmologist for prescription)).

Great Plugin!

Retina the easy way
By , for WP 4.1.1

Save yourself a lot of time and headache by using this plugin for serving highres images to retina displays. Set it up once and you are done, it's just that easy. Since the last update lazy load is already included which makes the plugin just perfect. Keep up the great work!
