- Responsive Images - We dramatically improved the theme's load time, image quality and performance by adding responsive image functionality. Now throughout your shop, the specific images needed for the browser's width and screen quality (retina or non-retina) will load. Mobile devices might load an image that is 400px (non-retina) or 800px (retina) wide, however, a desktop visitor might see the same image load in at a high quality 2000px wide based on their browser width. This significant change reduces load time for mobile users and ensures everyone sees the best quality images.

We also increased the PageSpeed up 32% to 92% optimized and YSlow score up 7% to 79%. With this optimization effort, we have crossed off every possible improvement that is controllable by themes—remaining is up to Shopify.
