Example Media Queries high-res Retina CSS Styles

Example Media Queries high-res Retina CSS Styles

Let's say you had three major breakpoints in a design. This design also had a large background graphic and you wanted it looking it's best on any screen (retina or not) and not waste any bandwidth. You'd set up 6 media queries, one for each breakpoint and one for each one of those breakpoints on retina. Then you'd override the background image all the way down.

@media only screen and (min-width: 320px) {

  /* Small screen, non-retina */

}

@media
only screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2)      and (min-width: 320px),
only screen and (   min--moz-device-pixel-ratio: 2)      and (min-width: 320px),
only screen and (     -o-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2/1)    and (min-width: 320px),
only screen and (        min-device-pixel-ratio: 2)      and (min-width: 320px),
only screen and (                min-resolution: 192dpi) and (min-width: 320px),
only screen and (                min-resolution: 2dppx)  and (min-width: 320px) { 

  /* Small screen, retina, stuff to override above media query */

}

@media only screen and (min-width: 700px) {

  /* Medium screen, non-retina */

}

@media
only screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2)      and (min-width: 700px),

}

@media only screen and (min-width: 1300px) {

  /* Large screen, non-retina */

}

only screen and (                min-resolution: 2dppx)  and (min-width: 1300px) { 

  /* Large screen, retina, stuff to override above media query */
