Design for Retina Displays
I *love* the new Mac Retina displays for editing and for displaying my portfolio (e.g. on a retina iPad), but they're giving me fits when it comes to publishing my work on the web. Consider:
(a) if I publish images in "standard" DPI sizes, they of course look up-scaled and slightly blurred when viewed on a Retina iPad or MacBook.
(b) if I publish images in "retina" DPI sizes in a "responsive" website or service, then my photographs get resampled and scaled down--i.e., slightly blurred--when viewed on a monitor or device with normal DPI. (Also, if I publish in "retina" sizes, the images are *huge* and take more bandwidth to load. Don't want to loose viewers in the loading time.)
So what's a tog to do? What do you folks do? Do you design / output for retina? How do you handle these choices--it seems like neither is good.
From what I can tell, it seems as though very few togs out there are publishing "retina" grade material. What've you all seen?
