Pieces of advice

toujou is based on TYPO3 and anyone familiar with TYPO3 knows that there are many different options to use to reach your desired results. We would like to point out important information and little tricks that can assist you when you’re creating and editing your website.

At first these settings may seem a little over-detailed. However, these image format settings are designed to ensure that your images appear correctly on all devices because not every visitor to your website has the full format of a widescreen.

With so many different sizes of screens you need to play close attention to how images will look on smaller screens and what information may need to be displayed if the image isn’t strong enough. The effort will be worth it since many websites don’t pay close enough attention to image presentation. Paying attention to this will separate you from your competitors.
