Prull Custom Builders was looking for an eye-catching website so they could showcase their incredible home building portfolio. One of the challenges for this type of site is getting the images to load quickly. On some of their portfolio pages, there are over 20 hi-resolution images. This required us to build in a backend progressive loading system. Essentially, when a user opens a page a much smaller version of the image is loaded in order to get the dimensions of the page. In the background, the larger images are being downloaded. Once the larger image finishes downloading we display it in the place of the low res version. This provides a quick, seamless user interface while also showcasing high-resolution photography.
