Image Sizing for Higher Density Screens

At this time, the UW Theme does not deliver higher density images to higher density screens (i.e. retina displays) due to the trade-offs in performance, as well as the accessibility of larger images for those with rural internet connections or those who rely almost exclusively on mobile. 

The service may reconsider support for this in the future. If you have a need for high density image support, please consider submitting a feature request to our Feature Request Board: WiscWeb - Submit a Feature Request.
