Bigger, wider and higher res!

Recently we made some improvements on our website which made it so that images are displayed larger and higher resolution.

The update

This update was created with bigger screens being more accessible, in mind. As larger screens are more accessible than ever (because they're cheaper than ever) it was important that we modify the way that images displayed to go full width when viewing our websites on a big screen.

Although more than 50% of transactions on the internet are made on tablets and phones, if someone isn't using a phone to view your website, chances are they're using a big screen to view your website. Computers of 4 or 5 years ago might come with a 19" screen as standard, but these days a 24" screen is pretty standard and cheap so with bigger screens more common place we've made sure our sites look great on bigger screens as well as smaller ones!

The images

Apple computers are increasing in popularity and with Apple computers comes the need for Retina-ready images. The modification we made has ensured that images are Retina-ready, super sharp and display the best they possibly can on a large screen!

What are Retina-ready images?

Retina ready refers to a type of screen on a device, which has a pixel density so high (basically has millions of pixels), that the human eye cannot pick out individual pixels. A website that displays retina ready images gives amazing image clarity, bright and more vivid colours.
