Discover how to make your website more readable and efficient across various screen sizes and devices. Join author Chris Converse as he shares his own specialized techniques for creating a responsive site. The course takes the site from start-to-finish, from comping your ideas in Photoshop, to setting up the HTML page and containers, to styling established elements for small, medium, and large screens. In particular, Chris shows how to load images with CSS, reposition the nav bar for better viewing on mobile devices, and how to make the download time faster for small screens by providing multiple versions of your banner graphic and other images. Plus, learn how to replace graphics with high-resolution versions for Retina displays using CSS media queries.

Now the last two things I want to do for the small-screen device is to add a rule to the footer and to get rid of the background- image on small screen-devices as well. So let's come back to our text editor. After our promo rules, let's hit a few returns. Let's start by targeting the footer, beginning and ending bracket. Let's set border-top to 1 pixel, solid, and the color is going to be #a6abc5;.
And then the final rule, let's target the body element. Let's come into background- image and let's set that to none. Just like we did for the medium screen, I don't want to download any background-images for small or medium screens, since the design actually touches the edges of the browser. Now with these rules in place, let's come back out to our browser. Let's hit Reload. We'll see the footer now has a border across the top. Now at this point we've completed Creating a Responsive Web Design. We've started from Photoshop, created a whole series of images, and actually put these together in such a way that we also get the advantage of responsive delivery, so that people on small and medium screens will download less data than people on large computer screens.
Next, we'll talk about where you might want to go from here.
