Responsive 'Background Image' Resizing

Webflow currently serves smaller images when sites are viewed on smaller devices. This is great for pageload (duh)

However, i've found myself designing sites that rely on background images a lot more, and it would be great to see these not impacting pageload so much! 

I don't have a coding background so i have no idea how hard this would be to implement, but if it's easy, i would appreciate it!

Please re-categorize if i've put this in the wrong place, and thanks in advance!

    This is so important! Every single site we make, we have to make tricky workarounds with images posing as background images. Especially when it's populated by the CMS where clients constantly forget image sizing and upload huge stock images.


    Please hurry with this one and Rich Text image transforms.

    This seems like a no brainer. Just ran some speed checks on my Google Analytics account and it's crushing my mobile load times having larger resolution backgrounds for desktop devices. Come on Webflow!

    I would also LOVE to see this idea come to life background images are such a great design element it would be so fantastic if they resized! 

    Thanks in advance Webflow <3
