How to Display Different Images Based on Screen Sizes in HTML

You can create responsive images right inside HTML, by using the srcset and sizes attributes on images:

<!-- Use srcset with sizes to display different images based on screen size -->

<img srcset="small-nickcage.jpg 320w,
             medium-nickcage.jpg 768w,
             large-nickcage.jpg 1024w"
     sizes="(max-width: 320px) 280px,
            (max-width: 768px) 720px,
            1024px"
     src="large-nickcage.jpg"
alt="No need for introduction, you already know him" />

srcset defines a comma-separated list of images with their intrinsic size. On the other hand, sizes holds a list of media queries with preferred image sizes. Meaning that if the browser matches the media query, the image will be displayed on the size specified next to the query.
