The current implementation downloads images that can greatly exceed the device's screen dimensions and are rather large files. For example, on my 1920 px x 1200 px desktop, the carousel can easily download images in excess of 1.5 megabytes and 2500 px wide. This current approach does not seem very mobile friendly for poor cellular connections.
This ticket tracks first spiking on defining how to optimize image downloads and identifying any concerns, then doing the actual work.
- The maximum image size should be limited to ____px.
- On screen resolutions greater than the image size, the image should not be stretched.
