removing inline styles from wp-caption div

How to change image type for specific size?

I am optimizing a site with large (dozens) quantity of images on page in a grid. For retina support the images are also need to be 2x sized. The low hanging fruit was to make sure the thumbnail sizes are loaded (which are still considerable 520px wide because of the retina) instead of full original […]
