Responsive Images and Performance Optimization using Cloudinary

Using images on contemporary websites correctly is not the easiest task. Different devices with different resolutions and pixel densities require much more than just a default image file. Even though high-resolution displays require large images, the files have to be kept as small as possible due to limited data plans, especially on mobile devices. This is not an easy undertaking.
