In this session, I will be talking about all the important points that one should keep in their mind regarding Images in a Drupal website. Since Images are a very important website element that not only impacts how your website looks but is also a key factor in deciding the load time of your website. These are the main concepts that I'll be touching on:

  • Image uploading on the server.
  • The User experience of uploading images.
  • Image compression using external tools.
  • Image storage in Drupal.
  • Accessibility of images.
  • Image Field vs Media in Drupal.
  • Image Styles
  • Responsive Images
  • Retina Images
  • Image optimisation pipelines
  • External Storage of Images
  • Digital Asset Management
  • Next Generation Image Formats

The session would be helpful for both technical audiences who develop and maintain websites as well as non-technical editors and content creators who work with images.
