On-the-fly responsive images

Have you got the time to generate a device-specific responsive image for every image in your content articles? We thought not.

Sure, you can - like many templates do today - use the antiquated css technique of adding the stylesheet rule img{width:100%;height:auto} which forces all of your images to be displayed at 100% of the available space, but that has a negative effect on your site's bandwidth, performance and SEO.

On smaller devices such as mobile phones, your site's visitors will still have to download desktop sized image files, meaning your pages will load slowly on anything other than wifi or 4G data plans.

TEXTman overcomes this limitation by generating device-specific images and outputting <img> tags with srcset attributes. Now, your site's performance will be ramped up and your pages should load a lot quicker on smaller devices.
