David Bushell 13 December 2012 @Eric Portis — totally agree, I’m guilty of too much UI-centric web design thinking here. For a website that is all about the rich media content, e.g. a photography portfolio, then this optimisation does become a bigger/more immediate problem as you’ve noted. While a solution is being developed I still think it’s good advice to stick to standard resolution and less stock image dependant layouts. The proverbial 1mb person smiling at a salad sort of thing.
