Hi people,For those of you who use
imageUrlFor(buildImageObj(node.mainImage))...
how do you ensure to download a proper size of image for the current view port?

I have a code like

<img 
    src={imageUrlFor(buildImageObj(node.mainImage))
                      .auto('format')
                      .width(1000)
                      .url()} 
/>
Instead of
1000
, what do you do? Do you use JavaScript to get window width and calculate the width of image you want to get? Or is there any other recommended practice?

Hey
user S
I’ve used something like that on a project
 <picture>
        <img
          style={{ width: "100%" }}
          srcSet={`
            ${urlFor(node.asset).width(320)} 320w,
            ${urlFor(node.asset).width(480)} 480w,
            ${urlFor(node.asset).width(800)} 800w
          `}
          sizes={`
            (max-width: 320px) 280px,
            (max-width: 480px) 440px,
            800px
          `}
          src={urlFor(asset)}
        />
      </picture>

Oh, I didn't think of that. I'm not very good with images 😅 Thanks for the tip!

I got this snippet straight from a codesandbox, but I can’t find the link 🤔 I tend to prefer this solution to GatsbyImage.
