The Responsive images and styles module allows you to manage images in Drupal sites that are using Responsive Design. The module provides an interface to map existing image styles to breakpoints.

This documentation is only for the 7.x-2.x Version.


Recommended to download the 7.x-2.x Version and install. This version doesn't use javascript anymore to detect the device width, but uses a picture tag and full media queries.
