When viewing the "technical card" page with a computer equipped with a Retina or other high-DPI display, the image looks blurry because it is offered to the browser as a 72 dpi image although the display resolution is higher.|
Other sites, like Flickr, provide a high-DPI version for clients equipped with high-DPI displays, and the appearance is much better. They accomplish this by pointing the IMG tag to a higher-resolution version of the image, but then scaling it down to a small size. In the following example from Flickr:
<img width="723" height="482" src="//c1.staticflickr.com/2/1785/29563409628_888229d2dd_h.jpg" class="main-photo" alt="The Pacman Nebula, NGC 281, in Cassiopeia | by Frankz">
the actual image pointed to is a 1600x1067 pixel version, but the browser is instructed to scale it down to less than a quarter its size. The result, viewed from a high-DPI display, is a much sharper and finer detailed image.
Please implement something similar in Astrobin. It would remove the need to also host pictures on Flickr.
