“are there any plans to support responsive images within the AESOP story engine?”
I am not entirely sure about what you mean. We already support responsive images with Aesop. Can you expound on this?
“As it looks the lazy-load plugin would be the location to implement that…”
“The Aesop Lazy Loader plugin works by only loading the images that are currently in view in the browser. The images that aren’t in view aren’t loaded, until you scroll down. You can dramatically speed up the load time of your Aesop Story Engine powered site just by activating this plugin.”
Here’s an example: https://aesopthemes.com/genji/2013/12/27/told-you-so/?preview
