Only a minor contribution but this is bloody handy if you're using WordPress: WordPress › WP Retina 2x WordPress Plugins

Building apps for the iPhone 4s Retina display involves creating two sets of images one at 163ppi and another at 326ppi. Hopefully this information will be useful for you...

Just thought I'd pop in and share this article that I've come across recently.

This technique uses only 1 image that's looks great on a desktop and amazingly crisp and sharp on retina display. I've used it recently for one of the project I'm working on and I'm very happy with the results. Infact I'm surprised how little exposure this technique has had. Why are people still creating multiples images?

So just use higher compression for retina then.

But I know from experience that jpeg compression impacts different images to different degrees. Subtle gradients in particular suffer under compression and become chunky, and high compression can make them look strange.
