I have been watching some of your amazing presentations on youtube, Cloudinary seems full of amazing possibilities! I do have a few questions.
A) Can I forgo the Wordpress plugin completely and just upload directly to my Cloudinary account, or do I need the plugin for the API to work? I would ideally like to host my maximum sized images on Cloudinary, and do not know if it is necessary to duplicate these images on my server, which wouldn't be ideal.
B) Unless I am reading incorrectly, I don't need to specifically call anything on the page (or do I?) to serve Retina images, this can be accomplished through the URL tags or parameters only? Or is the plugin already calling the needed JS to detect the screen resolution, and if I didn't have it, I'd need to call it?
C) I do need to call JS specifically along with adding parameters to the URL to add breaking points for mobile screens for images (set variable image widths) (if it wasn't also somehow necessary for Retina)?
It might be apparent that I'm not super knowledgeable, but I do see the possibilities. My biggest issue is figuring out a solution that serves smaller images on mobile (and adds appropriate retina support to these images when required). Doing that, and having a CDN for images and all the optimization, compression, even cropping at the same time is amazing.
