Native image lazy-loading for the web!
Addy gives us some amazing news this week with the upcoming release of Native Image Loading inside of Chrome 75 (hopefully). This is a cross over with an article and a tutorial, with Addy showcasing how this can be used in the future as well as practical examples of how you would implement this now and use a fallback of the much loved Lazy Sizes.

I'd encourage you to take a really close look at this article if it's the only one you read this week because you're sure to be using this as a standard approach in the next 12 months.

Planning for Responsive Images | CSS-Tricks
Chris Nwamba goes through the planning you should be doing when delivering responsive images on your site. One of the things that I've realised working in an agency with Art Directors is that they want every image to be the same as the photoshop document they scamped it up in. While we know that isn't possible, this kind of planning and understanding around the changing viewport sizes means you can shoot imagery in a way that is better suited to this style.

Improving Perceived Performance With the Link Rel=preconnect HTTP Header
When your browser requests all the different files that make up your page (CSS, JS, Images etc) it first needs to establish a connection with the server, and to achieve that it needs to perform a DNS lookup. This is already done if the files are coming from the same place the page (HTML) came from, but often we house our files on other servers for a variety of reasons (think cloudfront and cloundinary for images, or typekit/google for fonts). This lookup can be done early and in parallel saving valuable time later in the waterfall.

Remove Background from Image
100% automatically – in 5 seconds – without a single click : or at least that's what's on the site. You do need to click once to get an image, and then again to select it, and maybe one more time to download it.... but that's still pretty easy. I had mixed results, but all my pictures were poor quality, most others have had great results.

WebP image file sizes compared to equivalent Guetzli and Zopfli - Ctrl blog
I had previously assumed that WebP was always going to result in a smaller image size but that's not always true (but most of the time it is). If you're using really small images something like Guetzli compression will do a better job, but that's about the only time.

Lazy Loading Images – The Complete Guide
Lazy loading defers the loading of resources on the page as long as they are not needed. Instead of loading these resources as soon as the page loads, which is what normally happens, we defer the load of these resources to a later time when they are actually needed.

image-rendering: pixelated
Smooth scaling is most often a blessing, but sometimes we want to keep the blocky-ness of the image we are rendering on the screen. Pac-man for example should never be smoothed and should retain his blocky-ness. Another good example is when printing QR codes on the screen, they look blurry when the browser scales them when instead they should remain blocky.
