Overview of responsive image styles, which allow you to provide different images for different screen sizes.
Responsive web design, originally defined by Ethan Marcotte in A List Apart, is a set of design approaches and development best practices that ensures that a web design accommodates, adapts, or responds to the many types and sizes of devices a person may use to view a web site. A responsive web design approach can apply to layouts, font sizes, and images.
- Provide different layouts for different device size ranges
- Ensure that your site's font size is readable across all devices
- Provide different image sizes or sources for different layouts or device attributes

Resources labeled for Drupal 8 should also apply to Drupal 9.
