  1. I’m kind of new to the retina minding. I thank you for this post. I have a question though ; Since Retina offers a 300dpi rendering, does it mean we’ll have to consider this when using our images on ours website and blogs ? Right now, i’m mostly resizing them to 72dpi, and sometimes a bit more for Mac.

  2. Thanks for a valuable post and present. The retina part is enticing, and it looks like there are enough options that the theme could be used for a number of different sites. I’m trying it out now on my Web Doctor site.

    It looks like the header code is going to have to be tweaked, in spite of the fancy theme options. The addition of a logo is not very satisfactory with the default code. It’s too small and there’s too much wasted real estate at the top. But perhaps one person’s wasted real estate is another person’s wonderful white… well, F0F0F0 space. :-)
