Taking control of image loading

Web agency Barrel suggests some good ideas for taming image heavy sites. As a small caveat, I’m not crazy about some of the author’s example CSS (selectors that combine two classes in one level like ‘img_wrapper.loaded’ should be avoided) and I disagree that writing inline onloads are the way to go – there are cleaner, JS solutions to detect a reliable image load. That said, it’s an excellent primer, especially for newer front end web developers.
